The Greenferns Development Framework was previously Supplementary Guidance under the Aberdeen Local Development Plan 2012.

This is a statutory consultation for a 6 week period on the revised document which has been updated to reflect changes to circumstance and policy.

There are 5 main changes that have been made to this Development Framework since that previously adopted:

  • Provision of land for Enermech (industrial land) to remain in current site around Bucksburn House and land for future expansion.
  • Inclusion of the new school site, off Howes Road within the layout.
  • Inclusion of non-residential land uses within the neighbourhood centre.
  • Review of the location of the proposed neighbourhood centre within the layout.
  • Review of the proposed densities and phasing strategy.

What happens next
