Councillors are expected to discuss the future of a site at the centre of a clash between Aberdeen’s most famous boxer and a garden centre next week.
Lee McAllister, dubbed the Aberdeen Assassin, hopes to get the site of the former Cordyce School in Dyce to build his first Assassin Health Centre.
However, Parkhill Garden Centre and Seasons Coffee Shop near Dyce has also submitted a bid to move to the Riverside View site.
Councillors had been due to discuss the bids for the site last year, but this was delayed, due to “complications” around the offers that had come in.
The item is on the agenda to be discussed in private by the local authority’s city growth and resources committee on Thursday.
The plan put forward by Mr McAllister could transform the site of the fire-hit school into a sports centre with a swimming pool, cafe and gym.
Meanwhile, bosses at the garden centre also want to move into the site.
They claim the salt spray from the AWPR will damage the plants and stop the centre trading over the winter months.
Affordable housing developer First Endeavour LLP has got behind the garden centre plan and said it would work with the company to build 60 homes, community allotments, a care home and medical centre on the site.
