Prime Four Retail Park Developers Ask Aberdeen Council To Delay Decision
The developers behind a controversial £100 million retail park on the outskirts of Aberdeen have asked the city council to defer a decision on its application.
Prime West retail park, next to Kingswells’ Prime Four Business park, would include a Next, Superdrug and JD Sports and was expected to bring around 500 jobs to the area.
The 30,000 sqm development was due to be discussed at today’s full council meeting – officers had urged councillors to refuse the application.
In a statement released today Drum Property Group said: “We will continue to refine the proposals for Prime West, which will deliver services, jobs and significant economic benefit at a critical time for Aberdeen.
“The proposals present the best opportunity to provide the city with a highly accessible, 21st century shopping environment, which local residents have demonstrated they want, and deserve.
“The application exercise has provided us with a wider understanding of the current priorities of the administration for the city centre and Aberdeen as a whole.
“There are a number of matters which came to light late in the process that we need more time to consider.
“The Council therefore accepted our request to defer matters to a later date.”
