Some planning-related arguments:-
- the LDP text admits that there is insufficient sewage capacity for all the proposed housing sites
- it also admits that the site suffers from surface water, so the housing would be at risk from flooding
- it suggests that ‘improvements’ might be required both to the B999 and the C-class road east of the development, a clear admission that this development will generate significant additional traffic.
- assuming each new household owns at least one car, the development would generate hundreds of additional car journeys at a time when we are supposed to be reducing carbon emissions – the text talks about ‘public transport infrastructure’, presumably jargon for ‘bus stops’, but how many new residents would really take the bus into Aberdeen every day?
