Berryden Corridor Scheme – Compulsory Purchase

March 10, 2016

 

You may be aware that Aberdeen City Council have had, for several decades now, a scheme to undertake the dualling of a section of the city known as the Berryden Corridor.  Budget approval of this scheme was achieved in early 2015 and the Roads Department of the City Council is currently finalising the fine detail of the road design and the definitive plans are anticipated to be completed by Easter 2016.

Details of this scheme can be found on the City Council’s website under the heading of “Berryden Corridor – Aberdeen City Council”.  Further, the City Council is in the process of identifying all the relevant affected parties by way of title investigation work and is likely to be contacting these parties in early course in order to record occupation and ownership information.  Thus, the likelihood is that a draft Compulsory Purchase Order will be promoted and issued by the City Council in order to acquire the relevant lands for this scheme to be undertaken – probably later this year.

It would appear that the scheme would be constructed in two separate phases with the first and major phase being undertaken in the period late 2017/late 2019 and would involve the dualling of the existing road layout from the roundabout at Skene Square/Maberly Street/Rosemount Place all the way along Berryden Road, leading onto Great Northern Road and finishing at the roundabout at St Machar Drive.  The second, more minor phase would be northwards from the St Machar Drive roundabout to the junction of Great Northern Road and Don Street.

Although still at relatively early stages of this scheme the proposals and contact by the City Council are likely to cause concern to those directly affected who will have either all or part of their property compulsorily acquired, therefore any enquiries should be direct to our Compulsory Purchase Specialist Keith Petrie.
