Decision status: Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 06/02/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The Council have been in negotiations with Keepmoat Homes Limited over the access / disposal of this piece of land since 2015. Keepmoat Homes Limited are bound by a Grampian Condition as part of their planning application for the development in Hodthorpe, which requires the confirmed access over the aforementioned land prior commencement of any works on site. The urgency is necessary to ensure that the negotiated price is accepted and there is no room for Keepmoat to reduce the price due to a delay. They have set a deadline of next week for agreement. By considering the matter on 10 Feb, the Council can continue to progress the matter with Keepmoat Homes Limited’s solicitor and complete the matter promptly. This too will enable Keepmoat to commence with the development of the land.
