A community council will be placed under supervision by a local authority due to internal conflicts.
Westhill and Elrick Community Council (WECC) has had the measure imposed on it by Garioch area manager Margaret-Jane Cardno.
The move means the group will cease to operate for a three-month period until it is deemed to be compliant with the scheme for the establishment of community councils.
The measure, called Supported Status, means the group will not be allowed to comment on planning applications.
Councillors at the Garioch area committee will hear next Tuesday that the decision to instate the measure was made because of breaches to the scheme.
A number of complaints led to the community council struggling to manage internal affairs according to a council report, but no exact reason for the move was given.
A previous chairman of WECC had resigned in April 2018 after The Evening Express revealed the No Kingsford Stadium (NKS) campaign had created a fake spokesman to give media interviews with regards to the new stadium.

In a report prepared by Ms Cardno, it said: “Over the last 18 months WECC has experienced some acute difficulties which have manifested themselves through a series of formal complaints, counter complaints and more recently, resignations.
“Although the community council continues to engage in some very positive project-based activities it is struggling to manage its own internal affairs.
“These are primarily linked to internal relationships and behaviours.”
According to the report the organisation will be under the area manager’s supervision for three months from April 22 until July 22.
The group was told of the decision at its monthly meeting on April 11.
