CALA has been granted planning approval from Aberdeen City Council to build an exclusive residential development at Balgownie Road, Bridge of Don, Aberdeen.

The plans for Balgownie Road include the creation of 32 luxury detached, semi-detached, terraced homes and townhouses. In addition to this, a number of affordable homes are also included within the plans.

This follows the success of CALA’s adjacent development, Balgownie Gate, which comprised 26 three, four and five bedroom homes from CALA Homes’ Signature Collection.

The derelict building – which is seen as a danger and a blight in the local landscape – will be removed as part of plans with the development being brought forward in-line with CALA’s exacting standards which have been welcomed at the previous site. 

The Bridge of Don development will include a variety of sizes and style of homes, appealing to a mix of buyers, including first time buyers, those with growing families to homebuyers looking to downsize. 

Mike Naysmith, Managing Director of CALA Homes (North), said: “We know that there is a keen appetite in the Bridge of Don area as we now only have two homes remaining at our Links at Dubford development. 

“We have had a lot of interest in The Grange at Balgownie Gate development and this development will allow us to continue to offer a fantastic range of property size and style, all featuring CALA’s exacting specifications and generous living space.

“Our plans have been carefully designed to include the demolition of the current derelict building located on the site. The former One Bowl Centre has long been considered an eyesore by the local community and this will allow us to ensure that the surrounding area is developed in keeping with CALA’s high standards apparent at the adjacent Balgownie Gate.”   


Work is expected to begin on site in spring 2017.
