5,000 voices have said NO! We need to be prepared, in the unlikely event that Aberdeen City Council grant permission for this application. We need to leave nothing to chance. We need to continue to fight. We need to be able to challenge the Council through the courts should they grant this application. We have retained solicitors who will evaluate the case and will inform us of the likely outcome of any legal action. Legal advice already obtained is that we have a strong case, however, we require to obtain a legal opinion to consider and plan our case in the event that Aberdeen City Council approve the stadium application. A legal opinion is a more formal level of legal guidance from those experienced with cases in the Court of Session and would be required as part of the process of requesting a judicial review of the decision. We can only do this with your help. We need to raise £5,000 to pay for the legal opinion, the first step in the legal challenge. There are other funding considerations too and we will share these with you at our public meeting. Please don’t leave it to others – if you feel as strongly about this as we do – help us reach our initial target.
