Campaigners fighting against Aberdeen FC’s plans for the new £50million Kingsford Stadium have officially lodged a petition for judicial review.
The No Kingsford Stadium group, which raised more than £66,000 for the legal challenge, put forward the petition late on Friday afternoon.
The official deadline for lodging a petition for judicial review was Sunday.
The NKS organisation has highlighted a number of reasons it is opposed to the plans for the stadium’s location through high-profile campaigning, including concerns over infrastructural, environmental and amenity impact in the Westhill and Kingswells areas.
A spokesman for the city council said: “We note proceedings have been raised in relation to the planning consent granted for the Kingsford development.
“Aberdeen City Council will follow due process, and it would not be appropriate to comment further on an active legal matter.”
