Could a new shop be on the cards for residents at Hillside?

Residents from Hillside in Portlethen have been campaigning for facilities in the area for quite some time, but at the Portlethen and District Community Council meeting on Tuesday, John Low from Stewart Milne Homes said that his agent has had an interest in retail units at Hillside.

The land has been available by SMH for some time but no one has come forward to fill it. Mr Low said there has been a “tentative approval regarding the retail area” and said he doesn’t know what mileage it’ll have but confirmed that there has been a “tentative enquiry” in the matter.
