A naming ceremony has launched a multi-million pound development in one of Aberdeen’s most deprived areas, into which JNCC’s Aberdeen office will relocate.

 

Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment Richard Lochhead christened the £12 million development ‘Inverdee’. The joint scheme by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Grampian Housing will provide a mix of houses and low-cost flats. SEPA’s existing buildings, no longer fit for purpose, will be replaced with additional office space to be shared between SEPA, JNCC and Scottish Natural Heritage.

 

JNCC’s Aberdeen office will move from its Dunnet House location to Inverdee early in 2010.
