BANCON Homes has received planning permission to build a second phase of homes at its Lochside of Leys development in Banchory.
The company will create a total of 102 homes, made up of three, four and five-bedroom properties as well as 24 affordable homes.
Allan Clow, Bancon Homes managing director, said: “We are delighted that Aberdeenshire council has approved our planning application for Lochside of Leys.”
As part of the agreement Bancon Homes will also make a “significant contribution” to the local economy as part of its planning obligations.
This will help fund the primary school and the town’s community, recreational and healthcare facilities. In addition to this, it will also upgrade further stretches of the core path network.
