A NEW approach into Stonehaven from the Netherley Road is on the cards with proposals for a new road at Ury Estate.

Kirkwood Homes have applied for full planning permission for East Lodge link road infrastructure at land adjacent to East Lodge.

The proposed layout shows the road cutting through the Polbare tree belt and continuing downhill and slightly westwards before joining with the east link road at a give way junction west of the lodge.

The existing B979 road would be blocked to traffic by bollards and become a shared footpath and cycleway.

Meanwhile, one of the documents provided by Kirkwood Homes Ltd to support their application, is a masterplan of the estate, which shows how the supermarket development and affordable houses will be reached from the Slug Road – with a roundabout off the A957 leading into the estate.
