Sta­dium protest funds hit half­way

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

A cam­paign group against plans for Aberdeen FC’s new sta­dium at Kings­ford has re­ceived half of the £60,000 needed to launch a ju­di­cial re­view if the scheme is given the go-ahead.

The city coun­cil will de­cide whether or not to ap­prove the pro­pos­als for the 20,000-seat arena, train­ing acad­emy and her­itage mu­seum be­tween Westhill and Kingswells on Oc­to­ber 11.

Of­fi­cials of the No Kings­ford Sta­dium group con­firmed last night they have re­ceived guar­an­tees of £30,000 for their pe­ti­tion for a ju­di­cial re­view.

Heather Brock said: “The gen­er­ous fi­nan­cial sup­port given by those against the sta­dium plans is fur­ther ev­i­dence that the com­mu­nity does not want a sta­dium or any other fur­ther de­vel­op­ment along the A944.”
