£40m Triple Kirks bid is backed by coun­cil

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL­LORS have ended decades of un­cer­tainty over the fu­ture of the city’s his­toric Triple Kirks by back­ing plans for a £40 mil­lion rede­vel­op­ment. As re­vealed in later edi­tions of yes­ter­day’s Evening Ex­press, Ste­wart Milne Group won plan­ning per­mis­sion to in­clude the land­mark A-listed tower and spire at School­hill in a new of­fice com­plex for up to 700 peo­ple. Work could get un­der way next year on the re­mains of the 168-year-old build­ing. The plans are the lat­est in a long list of schemes which have been put for­ward for the derelict site since the 1970s. The ap­pli­ca­tion was ap­proved by coun­cil­lors af­ter a seven-to-four vote, de­spite ob­jec­tions from Aberdeen Civic So­ci­ety and the Ar­chi­tec­tural Her­itage So­ci­ety of Scot­land.
