Additional documents:


The Sub Committee had before it a report by the Director of Commissioning, which sought the determination of an application received from Aberdeen Football Club to increase the capacity of Pittodrie Stadium more than the capacity limits contained in the COVID Protection Levels.


The report recommended:-

that the Sub Committee:-

(a)      note the content of the report;

(b)      approve the application received from Aberdeen Football Club for 5,665 supporters; and

(c)      if minded to approve the application, to instruct the Chief Officer – Governance to amend the Safety Certificate for Pittodrie Stadium as appropriate.


The Convener, seconded by Councillor Lumsden moved:-

that the Sub Committee approve the recommendations.


Councillor Delaney moved as an amendment:-

that the Sub Committee note the report, but to refuse the application received from Aberdeen Football Club for 5,665 supporters due to public health concerns. Councillor Delaney’s amendment however was not seconded, therefore in terms of Standing Order 29.12, the amendment fell.


The Sub Committee resolved:-

(i)       to approve the recommendations contained within the report; and

(ii)       to request Aberdeen Football Club to make paper copies of the code of conduct available to attendees without computer/internet access.
