Reaction to the news that the Scottish Government will not be calling in AFC & Aberdeen FC Community Trust’s plans to build a new stadium, training and community facilities at Kingsford.

AFC chairman, Stewart Milne, said: “We welcome the Scottish Government’s confirmation that Aberdeen City Council can proceed to determine our planning application. We are keen to begin construction of the community and training facilities as soon as possible.

“The next step is to progress the terms of the legal agreement with Aberdeen City Council and work with all stakeholders on agreeing and meeting the conditions.

“We will continue to work with the City, Aberdeenshire Council and the community in the lead up to and during construction. Together, we can deliver a first-class facility to be proud of that will unlock the potential of the Club, the Trust and the next generation of football stars, while making a positive contribution to the local economy.”
