Cove Housing Development
Stewart Milne Group
T.H.E. worked with Stewart Milne homes on the design of a new affordable housing development within the Cove area of Aberdeen.

We managed the process from initial public consultation through to grant of planning approval for 45 houses and 122 flats, inclusive of 6 wheelchair accessible houses and 4 disabled access flats. 

The site is located in Aberdeen City, between the existing settlement and the Aberdeen to Dundee Railway line. The brief was for an affordable housing development incorporating disabled access housing and designed to meet the requirements of Registered Social Landlords in Scotland.

The proposals had to respond to challenges around the railway and create an attractive residential environment for residents. The design included flats over a split level to make efficient use of the site and houses located closer to the existing residential area in response to coastal views. 

The development is being completed by Stewart Milne Homes and is the outcome of a partnership approach, working closely with Aberdeen City Council, the Scottish Government and Hillcrest to provide much-needed affordable housing in this popular part of the city.
