Community Path Completed
Access link between Kingswells and Prime Four delivered by Drum Property Group
Work on a pedestrian access between the Kingswells community and the Urban Village Hotel, Fresh Deli, Kingswellies Nursery and Starbucks, within the business park, was completed earlier this month.
Drum Property Group, the Aberdeen-based property developer and investor behind the business park was delighted to see the link completed.
Fife Hyland, communications director at the group, said: “We have a great relationship with the local community at Prime Four and are delighted to have been able to help local residents by funding and constructing the new path, providing safer and easier access to all of the facilities.”
Stan McEwan, chairman of Kingswells Community Council, said: “We welcomed Village Hotels to the area as we could see the benefits that they could bring. However, without this user-friendly route to and from the hotel, the village felt cut off and slightly isolated. Kingswells had sorely lacked the leisure facilities that this new hotel was offering so there was no doubting that community council members were going to be in favour when the development was first mooted.”
Stan added: “The community council has been pushing for this link not only to the hotel but to all other facilities within the Prime Four hub, including Kingswellies Nursery and the Coffee shop. Prior to this new pedestrian pathway the trek from the village to these amenities involved a convoluted hike around the parameter of Kingswells Park & Ride. The community council would like to thank Drum Property Group for all their financial assistance.”18/12/2015
