Ury Petrol Station Application

By Jane Cruickshank / March 30, 2022

Wm Morrison Supermarkets have applied for planning permission for a six-pump petrol station at Ury Estate.

The move follows a recent public consultation which, according to the applicant’s planning statement, saw 364 comments submitted with 96.4% in support of the proposals.

Planning permission for a supermarket at Ury Estate was first granted in 2016, with the amended proposals for the country’s fourth largest supermarket chain being approved last October.

If given the go-ahead, the petrol station would be located opposite the supermarket and would face Ury House. According to the planning statement, it would ‘incorporate natural stone next to the glazed entrance with timber cladding’. Landscaping is hoped to soften the impact of the hardstanding form.

All in all, the proposed Morrisons development at Ury Estate is expected to provide up to 120 new full and part time jobs across the site, in addition to a number of jobs created during construction.

Full details of the planning application are available on the Aberdeenshire Council website along with a facility to comment on the proposals.
