Hospi­tal site set for new homes

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - LOCAL NEWS -

The site of a for­mer north-east hospi­tal is set for a new lease of life.

Pro­pos­als to build 44 af­ford­able homes with park­ing at the Camp­bell Hospi­tal, Port­soy, have been given the go-ahead.

Coun­cil­lors on the Banff and Buchan area com­mit­tee gave the project plan­ning per­mis­sion yes­ter­day.

Sanc­tu­ary Hous­ing Scot­land is to build a mix­ture of one, two, three and four-bed­room prop­er­ties.

Camp­bell Hospi­tal closed in 2011 and was de­mol­ished two years later.

Stephen Archer, Aberdeen­shire coun­cil’s di­rec­tor of in­fra­struc­ture ser­vices, stated: “The im­por­tance of the pro­posal in con­tribut­ing to the pro­vi­sion of af­ford­able hous­ing in the ru­ral hous­ing mar­ket area and to ad­dress a spe­cific lo­cal need is ac­knowl­edged.”
