A PETITION calling on Aberdeenshire Council to bring forward a proposed development at Kintore has now topped 600 signatories. The petition urges the council to allow the Gateway Kintore development proposal to go to council for a decision.
Indicative plans for Gateway Kintore have been produced by Aberdeen architects, Halliday Fraser Munro.
On a 33-acre site, adjacent to Kintore’s Broomhill Roundabout on the A96, they envisage a supermarket, filling station, 100-bedroom hotel, restaurants, nursery, play barn, business accommodation, sports pavilion and sports fields.
The plans also include an upgrading of the Broomhill roundabout to retain direct access to Kintore for traffic heading north on the A96 from Aberdeen.
Under current proposals from the authorities, northbound traffic from the A96 would be diverted on a new link road to join the B994, from where it would have to enter Kintore by Gauchill or Midmill. Traffic consultants have estimated that the authority’s proposed re-routing would add more than a million kilometres to total vehicle mileage each year.
The idea for the petition came from Kintore and District Community Council.
