Soft play area given go-ahead

COUNCILLORS have given the go-ahead to plans for a children’s soft play area and cafe on Stonehaven beach front.

The plans, approved at this weeks Kincardine and Mearns area committee, will see the amusement arcade on the beach front transformed into “pirate Pete’s”- a soft play area for children which will include a party room and cafe.

Councillors supported the plans,

Councillor Graeme Clarke said: “I would like to welcome this, I think it is going to improve the area down there. Well done to them.”

The application was discussed by the Area committee because the building is on land owned by Aberdeenshire Council and therefore permission had to be given by the area committee before any work could be carried out.
