Aberdeen residents will get the chance to share their views on an element of the proposed £320million harbour expansion.
A number of applications are currently under consideration by the Scottish Government, Marine Scotland and Aberdeen City Council as part of the massive project, which aims to build a new harbour and associated infrastructure around the Bay of Nigg, East Tullos and Altens.
A public hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday March 16, where members of the public will be able to have their say on the application for planning permission in principle which will be put to Aberdeen City Council.
The application will offer planning guidance for the area around the proposed development, and will incorporate how it will affect nearby industrial estates, roads, and more.
Planning development management committee convener Ramsay Milne said: “There will be a hearing about the development.
“The main harbour is dealt with by the Scottish Government but the onshore bit is ourselves.
“Members of the public will be able to make representations.”
Campaigners against the harbour expansion have previously raised concerns about the impact of the project, including threats to local wildlife, light pollution and the impact on roads.
