Further details will be revealed later this month about Aberdeen Football Club’s £40million plans to develop a new stadium near Westhill.

An exhibition at Pittodrie on Thursday, November 24, will provide an insight to the club’s detailed plans for the training, community and stadium facilities that it aims to establish on the site at Kingsford.

The display will also provide feedback on the public consultation events that have been staged in Aberdeen, Kingswells and Westhill during July and August.

The club’s vision for Kingsford is to deliver essential training facilities, community facilities and a new stadium, which will support the ambitions of the club, fans and AFC Community Trust.

This will create a focal point for footballing excellence and public participation in sport for the region.

The Dons have consulted extensively on plans for the site which have divided opinion in the area.

It is part of the process in the preparation of a detailed planning application, which the club intends to lodge with the local authority by the end of the year.

Officials believe it is important that the club now shares its detailed proposals for the project and what it will deliver in sporting, social and economic terms with all interested parties.

The exhibition will run for 3pm to 9pm at the AAM Suite in the Richard Donald Stand at Pittodrie on Thursday, November 24.

Access is via the Richard Donald Stand.
