A former councillor vying to be re-elected has called for a reduction in noise levels around an under-construction incinerator.
Former finance convener Willie Young is seeking re-election in the Torry and Ferryhill by-election on November 21 for the Labour party.
He said while knocking doors he had received noise complaints from residents living near the site of the future £150million energy from waste plant – a project he backed when in office.
Mr Young said he had written to council chief executive Angela Scott to see if there was anything the local authority could do.
He said: “I have asked the chief executive to arrange a meeting with Torry residents to give them reassurance around the noise levels emanating from the ongoing development as they feel that the council communication policy is inadequate at this time.”
A city council spokesman said: “Since work on the Ness Energy Project site at East Tullos commenced in late September we have received one noise complaint from a resident.
“We can also advise that any letters sent to our chief executive will be investigated and responded to in line with our normal processes.”
Other candidates in the by-election – sparked by the resignation of Catriona Mackenzie – are: Neil Murray (Con), Audrey Nicoll (SNP) and Gregor McAbery (Lib Dem).
