NKS asked AFC staff directly on Thursday if they proposed to use the venue for other events. We were advised this was not going to happen as they did not wish to take business from the new AECC. Today AFC announced that they will be hosting rugby games and concerts at the proposed stadium. This is a very quick change of tune from AFC! Their transport strategy is based on average football attendance of 13.5k, not the seated capacity of the stadium (20k) or the extra capacity for music events. Which leads us to question the validity of their transport strategy. George Yule has attempted to discredit residents concerns by saying in the Evening Express ‘it will only be 26 times a year…’ when clearly it will be a much greater number! In less than a week the club have changed their mind on such a huge issue, how can we be expected to believe what else we were told at their feedback event on Thursday?” The reality is that the local community cannot trust in any promise or commitment made by the club. The No Kingsford Stadium group, which represents the great many people in Kingswells and Westhill opposed to the proposed stadium developments, will continue to campaign vigorously to block any planning application on the proposed site.
