Local History - New Housing Development in 1953
Community Planning Simulator
Refusal of controversial Rubislaw Quarry flats plans overturned by appeal
Disappointing to hear that the Council’s decision to refuse planning permission for the Rubislaw Quarry development has been overturned on appeal after being voted down unanimously by councillors.
New Fire and Smoke Alarm Regulations
New regulations<https://www.gov.scot/publications/fire-and-smoke-alarms-in-scottish-homes/> are coming into force in February next year. They cover all homes. The obligation to comply rests with owners and landlords - so if you rent your place, make sure your landlord is getting on with the required work, and if you own your home, it's down to you.
The new standard requires:
* one smoke alarm installed in the room most frequently used for general daytime living purposes
* one smoke alarm in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings
* one heat alarm installed in every kitchen
All alarms should be ceiling-mounted and interlinked.
Where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance (such as boilers, fires - including open fires - and heaters) or a flue, a carbon monoxide detector is also required which does not need to be linked to the fire alarms.
Plans for an Aldi store have been approved
The proposals for the supermarket in Countesswells Road, opposite the Robert Gordon’s College playing fields, were approved at a meeting of the planning committee on 24/09/20.
