Aberdeen waste plant plans: hearing considered

Controversial plans for a waste recycling plant next to one of Aberdeen’s most popular parks could be the focus of a public hearing.

The waste recycling plant plans have met opposition in the local area

Waste firm SITA has applied for planning permission for the recycling centre on the former Grove Nursery site beside Hazlehead Park.

There are concerns the plant could create traffic, noise and smells, and affect the nearby Piper Alpha memorial.

Planners have recommended the application be deferred for a hearing.

Councillors will consider the report when they meet on Thursday 3 November.

About 150 people took part in a protest march over the plans last month.

A total of 167 men died in the Piper Alpha North Sea platform disaster on 6 July, 1988. There were 61 survivors.

Hazlehead Park is home to a memorial garden and statue.
