Aberdeenshire Council recently invited landowners and developers to put forward proposals for development that they would wish to be considered in the Main Issues Report, with a view to taking them forward over the next 12 to 15 years through the next Local Development Plan. As well as high profile proposals such as Stonehaven South, there have been many others submitted, including proposals for Catterline, Kinneff and Mill of Uras. All of these have been published at http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/planning/localplan/ldpproposals.asp#Kincardine.
Minutes of meeting held on October 24th 2008 are attached below.
Karelia Wright, Community Planning Officer for Kincardine and Mearns, will be giving a short talk on Community Planning at our next meeting, which will be held at Catterline School on Tuesday 28th October at 7.30pm. This will be followed by the normal monthly meeting business, including a discussion of the Stonehaven South development following on from the special meeting held earlier this month.
A packed Community Council meeting heard from Harry McNab of Bancon about the proposed Stonehaven South development at a specially arranged meeting last Tuesday. His presentation was followed by a lively and interesting discussion, at which it became clear that there are some considerable concerns in the community about the development, and in particular its effect on the Dunnottar Woods and on certain important views, such as from the Golf Course and the Black Hill War Memorial. There was also some qualified support for the development, although many expressed scepticism that the promised community facilities and infrastructure would actually be delivered.
Last Tuesday's general meeting was the first after the summer break, and was well attended. The Community Council were joined by several Aberdeenshire Councillors, and many issues that have come up over the summer months were discussed.
The application for three wind turbines at Hillhead of Auquhirie has been resubmitted, with slight modification to the location of two of the turbines, and the Environmental Impact Statement has also been published. Aberdeenshire Council will be contacting anyone who commented on the
previous application to inform them of the change and invite the
submission of new comments, and the Community Council will be resubmitting their comments to ensure that they are added to the new planning file.
The Community Council meets in Catterline School at 7.30 pm on the last Tuesday of the month, except for the months of July, August and December. The AGM is held after the ordinary meeting in March.
The next public meeting of the Community Council will be on Tuesday, 30 September 2014.
