We submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) to Aberdeenshire Council in March 2020 for the erection of new polytunnels over a 6.5ha area of arable land currently occupied by polytunnels to support the growth of our business. Please note that a PoAN commences the formal consultation on the proposal and is not a planning application.
The exhibition boards that would have been on display at the public consultation event can now be viewed here. (PDF)
The proposed polytunnels comprise modular units arranged in terraced rows with a proposed internal gross floorspace of approximately 60,000sqm.
The existing polytunnels have been present on-site for approximately 10 years, however, they are of inferior structural quality to the proposed model, which offers superior thermal qualities, and which have a more flexible, expandable/reducible design.
Indicative proposed finishes comprise unfinished steel or aluminium framing with white/off-white, translucent, non-reflective cladding.
If consented, the project will go a long way to the continuing success of our business and will allow us to grow in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
