A £30 million extension to an Aberdeen business park looks set to progress after a pre-planning application for a 20-acre site was submitted.
The ABZ business park, adjoining Aberdeen Airport, will get an extension under phase two of the plans with the first phase already expected to create £100m in construction work.
The 54-acre site at Dyce Drive, Aberdeen on the southern perimeter of the city’s international airport, was unveiled in late August by developer Ribnort.
Founding director George Stevenson said: “Following the strong reception we have had for phase one of ABZ, securing early outline planning permission for this adjacent site, which we own, is the natural next step.
“Commercial development land is in desperately short supply across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire – realising additional land of this kind for development would bring additional investment and jobs absolutely vital to the local economy.”
In addition to working in cooperation with Aberdeen Airport on the ABZ proposals, Ribnort is supported by property and building consultants FG Burnett, commercial property consultants Ryden, architects Halliday Fraser Munro and engineers WA Fairhurst & Partners.
