Oven ready planning application prepped for defunct Aberdeen bakery
February 21 2020
A defunct Aberdeen bakery is to play a new role after being acquired by Cater Group to provide new apartments.
A planning application is expected to be submitted shortly for Chalmers Bakery, situated on Auchmill Road, Bucksburn, which would see the current industrial building swept away for a three-storey linear residential block.
In a statement, client executive Glen Smith wrote: “We (Cater Group) are delighted to have secured another site in Aberdeen. We have developments across Scotland and the UK, but it’s always great to secure sites closer to home, and a stone throw away from our Aberdeen office on Great Northern Road.
“Proposals for the new flatted development look exciting, I think it will be a unique building. Plans are to be submitted in the very near future to demolish the building and build a flatted development. With signs of the property market in Aberdeen picking up, we are excited for our upcoming developments throughout the city.”
Growing demand for accommodation in the area has seen a separate site nearby earmarked for 92 affordable apartments.
