The closure of two major Aberdeen projects has lost the local authority £300,000 over the last year.
Aberdeen Art Gallery, as well as the Cowdray Hall and Remembrance Hall, which are currently closed for a major £30 million redevelopment, were expected to reopen at the end of this year.
However, work won’t be completed until late next year, with an expected opening date of 2019.
And the delay in opening the attraction, and a revamped Provost Skene’s House, could add another £500,000 to the total bill.
Councillors are back to considering options for the redevelopment of Provost Skene’s House, which is unlikely to reopen until at least 2019.
The figures were revealed in a financial projection , which had initially budgeted for £300,000 income from the two reopened attractions.
The statement said: “A further pressure is the closure of the Art Gallery and Provost Skene’s House, meaning a reduction in income received.”
A report into the delays has revealed there remains an “ongoing risk” that the construction programme for the gallery “continues to lose time” and might lead to completion of construction moving beyond March 2018.
This would push the nine-month fitting out period beyond early 2019 if any further delays are caused during construction.
