The subjects comprise an agricultural field extending to 8.44 hectares (20.85 acres) or thereby. Part of the field comprises the H3 zoning, with planning permission in place for 10 residential units and potential for up to 40 more in Phases 2 & 3. The remaining land offers hope value for future development and good grazing land that may suit an equestrian use meantime. Access is available from the A950 and Nether Aden road.

Planning permission in principle has been granted for 10 residential units (ref: APP/2014/2338) in Phase 1. Phase 2 is zoned for a further 10 residential units (that could be commenced from early 2017) with development in principle supported by the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2012. The vendors have proposed Phase 3 for development of 30 residential units in the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2016 (ref: Bcn006) and, while this was not taken forward by the Council, it is thought to provide considerable potential for development.

Coronavirus update - 05/01/2021

Whilst increasing lockdown measures pose additional restrictions for most of us, there is some positive news in that the property market in Scotland will not shut down in the way that it did earlier in 2020 and activities in connection with moving home (including viewing a property), or for activities in connection with the maintenance, purchase, sale, letting, or rental of residential property is permitted.

Of course our priority remains, the health and safety of our staff and that of our Clients and Customers, and we continue to ensure our business continues in the safest and most effective way.
