Aberdeen council has called for more information, including environmental surveys, before its next meeting, now in October, about Aberdeen FC’s new stadium development at Kingsford. George Yule, executive vice-chairman of Aberdeen Football Club, said:
Although this is later than we had hoped, we are confident that, if planning permission is granted in October, we will still meet the original target timescales of completing the community sports campus and football training academy in 2018 and the new stadium for the 2020/21 season.
Brighton College sports upgrade
Brighton College this summer begins work on building a new Sports and Science Building over four floors. Completion by the end of 2019.
The new building has been designed by Dutch architect OMA and will include a swimming pool in the basement along with underground parking for the college fleet of minibuses. The ground floor has a cafe, sports viewing area, gymnasium and sports hall as well as an indoor sprint running track. McLaren Construction will carry out the design and build (£38m).
The Bet365 stadium’s expansion is well under way. Stoke has released images of the construction’s progress.
