Concerns have been raised over the impact of floodlights on people’s homes as part of plans to create a new football stadium in Aberdeen.
Cove Rangers lodged detailed plans last month for a new stadium at Calder Park in Nigg.
The proposals are for a 312-seater stand and community facilities, which will include a 3G all-weather pitch.
The plans meet the SFA requirements for the licensing of a stadium.
But the city council’s environmental health team has raised concerns over the impact the floodlights in the stadium could have on future as well as current homes in the Loirston area.
In a letter to council planning officers, Mark Nicholl, of the environmental health team, said: “This proposed development has the potential for an adverse impact on the amenity of the occupants of current and future neighbouring local residences from a number of potential artificial light sources associated with the proposal.
“However, I am of the opinion that provision of suitable mitigation measures can address this.”
Cove chairman Keith Moorhouse said: “If it’s something that needs to be done then we will do it because the last thing we want is irate neighbours.
“We are all ready to go with the application and move forward but we have to respect Aberdeen City Council and the process it has to go through.”
Cove last year bade farewell to Allan Park which had been the club’s home for 67 years.
