Plans to install ramp at Aberdeen theatre approved

His Majesty's Theatre

Plans have been approved for a new fully accessible ramp at an Aberdeen theatre.

Aberdeen City Council planners have approved the proposals lodged by Aberdeen Performing Arts to remove an existing platform lift to the rear of His Majesty’s Theatre.

The lift will be replaced by a fully accessible ramp for access.

A report into the application said: “Replacement is required as the current platform lift is exposed to elements and prone to failure.”

In their decision, planners said the proposed ramp enables the “continued use and inclusive access” for all abilities and would have no adverse impact on the A-listed building.
