Planning applications determined
Aberdeen City Council's Development Management Sub-committee has determined a broad range of planning applications today, including plans for a new ski run, studios for a sports facility, flats, and a wind turbine on a landfill site.
A planning application for Aberdeen Sports Village, seeking permission to extend the sports hall building to provide three fitness studios/gyms and changing facilities, was unanimously approved.
A retrospective planning application for a new ski slope and ski run for the Aberdeen Snowsports Centre in Garthdee was unanimously approved. A new ski slope, about 68 metres long and at a 15 degree angle was proposed, along with three ski 'stations' and the ski lift with a number of tow hanger lifts, each designed to carry one person are to be built.
A former Aberdeen City Council children's home at Netherhills Avenue in Bucksburn is to be converted into a block of flats. A planning application to convert the Netherhills Avenue building into four two-bedroom flats, with a two-storey extension to the rear was unanimously approved.
A planning application for a 24.8metre high wind turbine on a disused landfill site has been unanimously refused. Permission was sought to erect a turbine on the former Tarbothill landfill site near Blackdog. The Ministry of Defence has raised concerns about the application, stating that it would cause unacceptable interference with the MoD radar installation at Buchan and prevent the Royal Air Force from being able to provide a full air surveillance service in the area around the proposed turbine.
