An MSP has said “major lessons” need to be learned after it emerged planners have recommended flattening an Aberdeen landmark.
Broadford Works, which was once home to the largest collection of category A-listed buildings at risk in Scotland, has been taken over by developer Inhabit, which plans to transform it into 460 homes, shops and offices.
The city council’s planning committee has been urged to approve plans to demolish parts of the historic Grey Mill for the development to go ahead.
Kevin Stewart, MSP for Aberdeen Central, said: “It is clear from this report that major lessons need to be learned from the old Broadford Works site as to just how damaging building neglect can be.
“It is disappointing that progress could come at the cost of Aberdeen losing a valuable piece of engineering and architectural heritage.”
A spokesman for Inhabit declined to comment.
