ACSEF referred to Audit Commission over “political” letter
July 9 2010
The letter, sent on April 14 in the run up to the general election, expressed ACSEF’s concern over Labour opposition to Sir Ian Woods plans for Union Terrace gardens
Aberdeen South Labour MP Anne Begg described the letter as “clearly political” and a “misuse of public funds.”
A subsequent vote in May saw Aberdeen city councilors back the plans despite a majority of respondents to a public consultation being opposed to the idea.
ACSEF are standing by the letter and hope to meet with local politicians over the issue.
Assuming a funding gap of £70m can be bridged the Council hope to see the Square completed by 2016.
