On 21 November 2017, Aberdeen FC submitted further information ahead of a further pre-determination meeting to be held at Aberdeen City Council on 17 January 2018.  A decision on the planning application will be made at a special meeting of the full Council on 30 January 2018.

We would ask that you lodge your support of the new stadium application in respect to the new information supplied on 21 November 2017 by Aberdeen FC.

To provide your support, please complete the form at the Aberdeen City Council link below:



A decision will be made on this planning application at a special meeting of the full Council on 30 January 2018. AFC had hoped a decision would be made before Christmas but the new date has been set to accommodate a further consultation period on the latest report submitted by the Club and another pre-determination hearing on 17 January 2018.

The latest report was produced in response to concerns from the Council planners in relation to the site selection process and co-location and the economic case.

We are, once again, seeking support to get this application over the line.

We’d be very grateful if you could write in support of the application, even if you have done so previously. However, your letters must relate only to the information in the supporting statement. You can therefore comment on your support for one or more of the below points:

1) The site selection process (why Kingsford is the only viable and deliverable site)

2) The need for co-location (why it’s important to have the community sports hub, football training academy and stadium all on one complex)

3) The economic case.

Your support can be lodged online on Aberdeen City Council’s website in the planning section.

Alternatively, you can email pi@aberdeencity.gov.uk or send a letter to address below before the 12th of December 2017.
