AFC Stadium

Aberdeen Football Club (AFC) has submitted a planning application for a new stadium at Kingsford, near Westhil.

The site is just north of the A944 Aberdeen-Westhill road and close to the bypass. It falls within Aberdeen City Council’s boundaries.

As well as a 20-000-seater stadium, the plans include proposed community and sports facilities.

What happens next?

A Pre-Determination Hearing was held on Wednesday, September 13, at Aberdeen City Council Chamber, the Town House, Broad Street. This was chance for supporters and objectors to air their views before councillors.

The application is expected to be ruled on in October.

The council’s planning team will put together a report on the application, weighing the pros and cons against policy, and can be expected to make a recommendation to either grant or refuse.

The report will be considered by Full Council, who will decide whether to grant or refuse the plan. Note: councillors do not have to follow the advice of officers.

Typically, the planners’ report will be published on the city council’s website a week before councillors meet to determine an application.
