OK. What is it and why should I care?
Most people usually ignore such topics but this plan sets out how Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City will change until 2030.
It proposes a Strategic Growth Area running from the City to Peterhead along the A90 which means the development of 3800 houses from 2007-2030. What does that mean - it adds around half an Ellon to the existing stock.
The plan proposes 800 houses 2007-2016, 1500 houses 2017-23 and 1500 houses 2024-2030
400 of those houses were added on 13th February just 6 days before Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City Councils approved the plan. So much for "widespread engagement and consultation".
So please do go and look at the proposed plan at www.aberdeencityandshire-sdpa.gov.uk.
