Park­ing ban for build­ing work

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

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
