Go-ahead for store
Work starts on supermarket outside Stonehaven
A new supermarket is under way at Stonehaven
FM Group has started building a 40,364 sq ft supermarket on the Ury Estate site, just outside Stonehaven.
Located at the south-western corner of the Ury Estate, the site of the future supermarket lies adjacent to the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee road, and the Slug Road, to the north of the seaside town.
Developers were granted planning permission in principle at an earlier stage for the supermarket and its associated infrastructure and were presented with a list of conditions to be met before the project could move forward.
FM Group has been given the go-ahead by Aberdeenshire Council after successfully meeting the requirements and work has now officially started to build the new store.
Jonathon Milne, director of FM Group, said he was delighted work was now getting underway on the new supermarket site.
Mr Milne said: “This clears all the planning conditions on the retail consent that we had previously, and what this means is it allows us to start work on the site.
“It’s all good news and there are lots of really positive things happening around Ury, so we’re feeling really pleased with how everything is progressing right now.
“The supermarket could be ready towards the end of next year.”
