Proposals to demolish Pittodrie stadium and build a residential development are being aired at a public meeting in Aberdeen.

Aberdeen Football Club is seeking planning permission to redevelop the site before putting it up for sale.

The club has already started the planning process for a new stadium beside Loirston Loch on the southern outskirts of the city.

A planning application is expected to be lodged within weeks.

The club is hoping to build a new stadium there, capable of holding about 21,000 people at a cost of up to £40m.

In the meantime it is pressing ahead with plans to redevelop its current home at Pittodrie.

The public is getting its chance to see the initial proposals for a residential development at a consultation meeting being held at the stadium's Millers Suite.

It is being organised by the architects Halliday Fraser Munro.
