Worst Planning Decision The decision to demolish an historical building and replace it with a development out of the character with the neighbourhood. The proposed development is over-bearing, out-of-scale and out of character in terms of its appearance compared with existing development in the vicinity.
Marischal Square, Aberdeen (Aberdeen)
Entombment of a well loved building in Aberdeen by Muse Development The 'Square' that Labour Councillors were bated with has become a 'courtyard' The scale of the development was unknown by said Councillors and now the citizens of Aberdeen have been left bewildered by this monstrosity of a building which has cut out the light that shone on our beautiful Marischal College Planning department 'forgot' to do a shadow analysis at the time of planning submission ?!? I could go on but it's too upsetting
This is my nomination for The Carbuncle Awards 2016.
There was and still opposition to this development but hope its OK to email the facebook site of one them.
Horrendous development in Aberdeen, obscuring beautiful old house of Provost Skene ( in the centre of picture one) and destroying the ambiance of our amazing granite Marischal College.
Provost Skenes House and Marischal College are the most blocked an blighted buildings in the development.
