Aberdeen's New Stadium Recommended For Approval

Last updated : 16 February 2011 By Stand Free Ed

CITY planners have recommended Aberdeen Football Club's proposed new stadium on the outskirts of the city for approval.

The Dons hope to build the 21,000-seater stadium at Loirston Loch near Cove at a cost of up to £40m.

The council meets on Wednesday 23 February, with potential economic benefits among the reasons for the recommendation for approval - but there have been more than 100 letters of objection.

The stadium, which will be lit at night by a red glow, is set to include a gym, a club shop, museum and supporters' bar.

The application follows a public consultation, and Scottish ministers will have the final say.
