Energetica offers a high quality natural and built environment .
Energetica seeks to attract sustainable, high value investment into the locality drawing on the dynamism and innovation of the energy industry and other high quality niche markets.
The Energetica corridor is a place where living, working and visiting merge seamlessly to create the definitive model of 21st century lifestyle in an attractive, high quality and sustainable environment.
It was clear in the early days of Energetica that a clear and robust planning policy framework was required to support development on the ground within the corridor.
Energetica is now recognised at Scottish Government level through the National Planning Framework, which is then distilled down through regional policy to local planning policy set out by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council.
Below this sits Energetica specific placemaking guidance. The purpose of the Energetica Placemaking documents is to translate the Energetica vision into clear, concise development guidance that will be challenging to developers while still being commercially viable.
The guidance aims to assist in transforming the Energetica corridor into a high class lifestyle, leisure and business location. It provides clear guidance to all developers on the desired standards that should be adopted when planning new developments within Energetica.
