Parking ban for building work
DRIVERS are warned parking restrictions will be in place on a city street for several months while works are carried out on a former office block. Vehicles will be banned from parking on the north side of Trinity Street, Aberdeen, from January 7 at 7.30am until April 29 at 8pm. Aberdeen City Council has said the measure is necessary while refurbishment works are carried out on Custom House, a vacant office block on the city’s Guild Street. Illegally parked vehicles will be removed at the owners’ expense. City planners recently approved an application by Teesside-based developer Mandale to transform the offices into a 106-bedroom hotel. In their report, they said the proposals would go along with the City Centre Masterplan, which says Aberdeen needs a wider choice of accommodation within the area. The developer is separately seeking permission to turn the building into 49 flats.
Work starts next month on Custom House
