A application for seven new homes on land at Westhill Golf Club has been officially approved by the Infrastructure Services Committee.
The development, which will include affordable housing, was granted full planning permission at a meeting of the committee on January 29.
Len Hubert, captain at Westhill Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted that our application for full planning permission has been approved by the Infrastructure Services Committee following our efforts to address concerns previously highlighted by the Garioch Area Committee.
“This development will provide a significant boost not only for the golf club, which requires much needed funds, but also for residents in the wider Westhill community who will benefit from enhanced facilities for years to come.
“Everyone connected to the golf club is extremely excited about the next phase of the development, although there is still a lot of hard work to be done. I’m certain that this will be a springboard for both the club and the community.”
Following approval, funds raised from the release of two small areas of surplus land for the development will be used to upgrade the course and clubhouse facilities including new locker facilities, toilets and club entrance.
