editorial image

A series of public exhibitions in late July and early August will provide the first details of Aberdeen Football Club’s plans to develop a community and sports campus, football academy and stadium on land at Kingsford.

The consultation events at Westhill, Kingswells and in the city will enable members of the public to view and comment on the proposals before a planning application is submitted to Aberdeen City Council later in the year.

The project aims to deliver essential training facilities, community facilities and a new stadium, which will support the ambitions of the Club, its fans and AFC Community Trust, and provide a focal point for footballing excellence and public participation in sport for the north-east of Scotland.

The Club is committed to a comprehensive programme of public consultation on our proposals, as detailed in the Proposal of Application Notice submitted to Aberdeen City Council on June 27. This is a significant project for the Club and AFC Community Trust, the city and the region and it is important that we share our vision for the development and what it will deliver in sporting, social and economic terms with all interested parties.The main consultation events will be:

Tuesday, July 26, 1pm to 8pm at Fourmile House, Old Skene Road, Kingswells

Friday, July 29, 1pm to 8pm at Holiday Inn Aberdeen West, Westhill Drive, Westhill

Tuesday, August 2, 1pm to 8pm at Pittodrie Stadium, Pittodrie Street, Aberdeen

Further pop up exhibitions will also take place:

Wednesday, August 3, 12 noon to 6pm at Trinity Shopping Centre, Union Street, Aberdeen

Friday, August 5, 12 noon to 5pm at Central Library, Rosemount Viaduct, Aberdeen

Monday, August8, 2pm to 8pm at Pittodrie Stadium, Pittodrie Street, Aberdeen

The proposals will also be available to view via the Club’s website at www.afc.co.uk/stadium from 26 July.

Comments in relation to the proposals will be accepted until Friday, August 26. This will enable the Club to review responses to the consultation before a formal planning application for the project is submitted to the local authority later this year.
