Stadium proposal: WECC comments on new information


Westhill and Elrick Community Council (WECC) have made fresh representation to Aberdeen City Council (ACC) over the proposal for a football stadium at Kingsford, close to Westhill.

ACC had asked the applicant, Aberdeen Football Club, a number of questions, and the answers were shared with the public for further comment.

WECC wrote: “We did not read anything that addressed what we saw to be the fundamental flaws in the original application. Whilst this additional information adds detail to largely environmental issues including wildlife and flooding, it does not address the main planning policy issues which we outlined in our previous objection.

“This proposal is for a significant development on virtually the only piece of remaining Green Belt land left between Westhill and Kingswells.”
