The plan is for an urban village on the site of the former Donside Paper Mill

Aberdeen College is submitting plans to move to a new riverside campus at the Don at Tillydrone.

If approved it would form part of a 40m urban village on the site of the former Donside Paper Mill.

Outline approval has already been granted for housing, and the land earmarked for the college had earlier been suggested for a hotel.

Aberdeen College principal Rae Angus said they were keen to relocate most of its facilities in the city centre.

The former Donside Paper Mill site was purchased by Devanha Ltd in 2007.
