A community group's plans to create new allotments in Oldmeldrum have taken a major step forward after full planning permission was granted by Aberdeenshire Council.
The development of the site was first proposed back in 2021 and following a public meeting in April last year, plans were submitted for the site which sites to the south of Meadow View and will be accessed off Milburn Road.
A total of 25 plots will be created along with a small parking space for users and a communal polytunnel which will be bordered by raised planting beds.

While the site has already been cut back for the summer, work is expected to begin in the coming weeks at the site.
