Aberdeen FC’s plans to build a £50m new stadium have divided the city, a survey suggests.
The club wants to build a replacement for Pittodrie at Kingsford, a proposal which has been met with fierce opposition from locals.
Of the 10,000 people who took part in a consultation on the plan, 53% backed it.
Of the representations, 5,330 (53.5%) are in support of the proposal, 4,797 (47.3%) state objection and 20 (less than 0.2%) are neutral in content.
Representations in support include those from:
- Stewart Regan, Chief Executive, SFA;
- Alan McRae, President, SFA;
- Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive, SPFL;
- Colin Parker, Chair of Scottish Council for Development and Industry, North east committee;
- Gary Atkinson, Aberdeen City and Shire Hotels Association;
- Duncan Skinner, Chair of the Board of trustees, Aberdeen FC Community Trust;
- Russell Borthwick, Chief Executive, Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce;
- Prof. Ferdinand von Prondzynski, Principal and Vice Chancellor, Robert Gordon University;
- Graeme Mackay, Inverness Reds Aberdeen FC Supporters Club;
- Sir Ian Wood GBE, Chairman, Opportunity North East (ONE);
Opponents are concerned about the impact increased traffic could have on Westhill.
Aberdeen FC has said there are “no other available sites” for the stadium.
The city council will hold a public hearing about the 20,000-seat stadium on September 13.
