Aberdeen’s City Garden Project dead and buried
‘There’s no point flogging a dead horse’
THE final nail in the coffin of plans to raise Union Terrace Gardens has been hammered home.
Aberdeen City Council today revealed their redevelopment blueprint for the city centre.
The move ends hopes of the Sir Ian Wood backed £140 million City Garden Project.
As part of that deal the Tories, who originally backed the CGP, have agreed to support their coalition partners’ alternative city centre vision.
Tory group leader Fraser Forsyth said the chance of the CGP coming back was now in the land of “unicorns and tooth fairies”, describing it as a “totally imaginary situation”, adding: “There’s no point flogging a dead horse.”
