Aberdeen Football Club have pulled their multi-million pound stadium and training facility plans from a crunch council meeting next week.
Councilors had been due to make a decision on the £50million Kingsford scheme next Wednesday.
But a spokeswoman for the club said that it was “deferred to allow further discussions with the planning service”.
AFC chairman Stewart Milne said: “This is a once in a generation project with major implications for the Club, the city and the wider region. It is also an application with a degree of legal and planning complexity that needs to be carefully considered. We have therefore decided to request that our application be deferred to a future meeting of the full council.”
