Scottish abattoir to be relocated
Scotbeef is to relocate an historic abattoir after planning permission to replace it with housing has been given the green light.
Aberdeenshire council has granted planning permission to demolish the Scotbeef abattoir on Inverurie’s North Street. The abattoir, which has been on the site for over 100 years, sits on land owned by a land-agriculture business, ANM Group.
As Inverurie itself expanded, it is believed the abattoir was poorly situated, surrounded by housing and a school. ANM Group, which owns a 25% share in the Scotbeef abattoir at Inverurie, applied for planning permission to redevelop the site into 77 new homes.
Scotbeef confirmed it was going ahead with plans to relocate the abattoir to Thainstone on land also owned by ANM, just south of Inverurie.
Although ANM Group could not confirm plans to relocate the abattoir, Scotbeef told Meatinfo.co.uk: “We do have plans to relocate to Thainstone, and we are in discussions with our co-shareholder, ANM Group, together with construction companies, and planners to work towards completion.”
