A pre-determination hearing into Aberdeen FC’s plans for a new stadium on the outskirts of the city will take place in September.

The £50m stadium and training facilities would be at Kingsford, on the outskirts of Aberdeen, close to the Aberdeen bypass, near Westhill.

The hearing will take place on Wednesday 13 September at Aberdeen Town House.

It will give people who have written in about the application a chance to speak about it directly to city councillors.

Over 4,000 people have responded to the planning application.

Aberdeen FC said if planning permission was granted in October 2017, it could still have the stadium completed in 2020.

The club believes the new stadium is vital if it is to achieve a sustainable future.
