Plans for a £20m leisure development in Aberdeen will now go ahead after the Scottish Executive reversed a city council decision to block the scheme.

Brewers and bar operators are being targeted to install their leading edge concepts on the 95,000sq ft site at Justice Mill Lane (artist's impression pictured above)​ which is already in the middle of a mixture of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

Ground floor units range from 2,500sq ft to 12,500sq ft, while the upper floor will house a health and fitness centre, swimming pool and café-bar. A 124-bedroom hotel will also be built on the site.

"Although we were refused planning permission, we were always confident that our plans were in accordance with local and government policy," said Martin Smith, development manager at Morrison Developments.

"We have taken on board comments from Aberdeen's planning department and have worked hard over the last few months refining our plans.

"The development will enhance the area and there are a number of interested potential occupiers. We hope to announce tenants in the near future."

Changes made to the plans include improvements to roads, pedestrianisation and CCTV.
