Stadium protest funds hit halfway
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.”
