In October 2013, Henry Boot Developments (HBD) was chosen by Aberdeen City Council to deliver the new AECC at Bucksburn and to redevelop the existing AECC site at Bridge of Don. The AECC is an important part of the City's business and leisure infrastructure and brings tens of millions of pounds into the local economy each year.
THE PROJECT WILL DELIVER A NEW AECC AT BUCKSBURN AND REDEVELOP THE EXISTING AECC SITE AT BRIDGE OF DON.
The Masterplan for the Bucksburn site has been approved by the planning authority, Aberdeen City Council. This has been approved as Interim Planning Advice for redevelopment of the site.
Planning applications for Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) have been submitted to the planning authority, Aberdeen City Council, for both the Bucksburn Masterplan and the Bridge of Don Development Framework. These will be considered by Aberdeen City Council’s Planning Committee in December.
An application for Detailed Planning Permission for the new AECC (including subterranean and public space, energy centre, hotel and associated access, landscaping, engineering works and car parking) will also be considered by Aberdeen City Council’s Planning Committee in December.
