Car park approval

Plans to build a temporary car park at the Arnhall Business park in Westhill have been approved by councillors.

The proposal was recommended for refusal by planning officers but Aberdeenshire councillors voted 10-2 in favour of temporary approval for five years at a Garioch area meeting in Inverurie on Tuesday.

The car park, to be built south of the Tesco petrol station, will contain 112 car parking spaces with two pay and display machines. A 161 multi-storey car park was approved last year to help reduce congestion.
