It is with a great deal of pleasure that we can make this announcement. The proprietors of Station Garage (Bob Shepherd and Adrian MacGregor) need to be thanked for their commitment and vision to bringing the project to this stage. Thanks also has to go to Aberdeenshire Councillors and Planning Department who have had the vision to support this project.
This is a very important development for Torphins specifically and Deeside generally. It is the result of almost 15 years of forward planning and puts in place the framework for the future of the village, offering a foundation for jobs and business opportunity in the Deeside Village.
The Full Planning Permission covers all aspect of the Business Park, including the Design of all Buildings and Accommodation not only those encompassing Station Garage ongoing and future needs but also incorporating Advance Units providing for flexible space and accommodation to suit user need. As with all Commercial projects, the Anchor Tenant is needed to get the Business park off the ground. Station garage is the Anchor tenant and this will encourage other businesses to follow into the New Park.
