Kingsford Stadium - Outside

New Stadium Approved Following Judicial Review

The judge overseeing the Judicial Review against Aberdeen FC’s new £50m stadium at Kingsford has given the go-ahead for the new stadium to proceed.

It means construction of the second phase of the project, including the stadium, can now go ahead, though further appeal avenues could be available to NKS and the group has 21 days to appeal to the Court of Session.

It is understood the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service has provided written confirmation of the judge’s opinion to the Council and the club today.

Work on phase one, including road access points and ground preparation works, began last July.

The full decision will be published at midday.
