“The Draft Proposed Local Development Plan (LDP) does not propose to include a specific allocation for a school. Aberdeenshire Council’s Education and Children’s Services are a stakeholder in the preparation of the Proposed LDP and have advised that, in the first instance, they would seek to extend or reconfigure the existing primary school, alongside a wider strategic approach to primary school education in south Formartine. However, we are committed to continuously engage with Aberdeenshire Council’s Education and Children’s Services on the capacity of Balmedie Primary School.”
“The preferred sites provide no community facilities or services to address the planning objectives contained within the Vision (532).”
