Blackdog, Aberdeenshire

This masterplan supports a total of three separate planning applications which, collectively, comprise the proposals for the new sustainable mixed use community at Blackdog, Aberdeenshire.

The new Aberdeen Western Peripheral Road (AWPR) will meet the existing A90 in a new elevated junction at the midpoint of this masterplan. At the heart of this new community will be the Blackdog Town Centre, and uniquely designed mixed use hub comprising of convenience and comparison Retail, including a Regional Food Hall, Cinema, Hotel and Restaurants. The new Town Centre will be surrounded by a mix of housing and business uses, and will meet the needs of the new community, that will become established at Blackdog, and the existing communities nearby. Threesixty Architecture have designed the northern retail and business section of this masterplan for Ashfield Land.

550 new homes will be delivered to the south of the town centre (by others), and new employment opportunities will be created to the north, including business and industrial floorspace.
