Preferred bidder selected for regeneration area

Dandara has been selected as the preferred bidder to redevelop the Middlefield Triangle following a decision by the Aberdeen City Council’s City Growth and Resources Committee.

The Triangle will be created when a connecting road is built between North Anderson Drive and Auchmill Road to ease traffic flow on the Haudagain roundabout.

Housing enclosed by the roads is of poor quality and is being demolished.

Committee vice-convener Councillor Gordon Graham said: “I am delighted that a preferred bidder has been selected for the Middlefield Triangle and that we can look forward to seeing detailed regeneration plans.

“During the pre-application process the Council will work with Dandara to ensure that the community’s views are taken into consideration.”

Dandara director Neil Young said: "We are very pleased to have been selected as preferred bidder for this strategically important site, and look forward to helping to breathe new life into the area.

"A mixed-use development is envisaged for the 'Middlefield triangle', and proposals for the land will be unveiled in the coming months."
