AECC to introduce parking meters

The Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre has been
given permission to install parking meters which could mean visitors being
charged up to £3 for parking in the AECC’s car park.

The plan was first rejected by Aberdeen City Council’s
planning committee in June this year but the decision has now been over-turned
on appeal.

A spokesperson for the AECC says: “We are extremely
pleased that this decision has been taken and we can now look forward to
implementing the Pay and Display scheme at the venue in due
course.

“The implementation of the Pay and Display system will
have a number of benefits including improved security, potentially fewer cars at
the venue – reducing travel time to and from events – and the additional revenue
it will generate.

“We will be seeking to keep our parking charges below
those of the rest of Scotland for the foreseeable future
and believe that for those attending major concerts and exhibitions at the
venue, when the scheme will be in effect, £3 per car is a fair and reasonable
figure to charge.”
