An Aberdeen community council has called on the local authority to compromise on the move of a much-contested bus stop.
Last year, Garthdee Community Council, Robert Gordon University (RGU) and bus firm First were in discussion to move the bus stop.
They want to reposition a stop at RGU after Garthdee Community Council chairman Paul O’Connor raised concerns it only took into account the needs of students.
Aberdeen City Council said the change would have “high costs and low impact”.
Mr O’Connor said: “The bus stop on Garthdee Road, without any consultation with the community and local council, was taken off and put inside RGU where fit, young and able students can walk up to Garthdee Road.”
An e-mail from an Aberdeen City Council officer, read by Councillor Ian Yuill at a community council meeting, said: “We have previously advised the community council that a meeting has taken place to discuss the issue and a full investigation has been carried out.
“If any party brings forward a new proposal or solution to the situation on Garthdee Road, we would be happy to discuss.
“At present, due to high costs and low impact that the change would have, it is not considered to be an efficient use of the available budget – approximately 10% of the annual spend.”
A council spokeswoman said: “A resolution is dependent on First and RGU agreeing and their proposal being tabled with for council consideration.
“We have previously advised the community council that a meeting has taken place to discuss this issue, and a full investigation has been carried out, but no agreement could be reached by all involved.
“If any party wishes to bring forward a new proposal /solution to address the issue, then we would be happy to meet again.”
