Public 'will influence future of Aberdeen city centre'

Muse plans Muse has released this new image of its plans, which it has said will be sympathetic to neighbouring buildings

The public's views on the future shape of Aberdeen city centre will be taken into account, the local council has said.

The reassurance came as the second stage of a consultation got under way.

Muse Developments has been chosen by the city council to deliver a civic square, offices, hotel and shops on the site of its former headquarters at St Nicholas House.

Muse has released a new image of the plans.

Deputy council leader Marie Boulton told BBC Scotland: "It's really, really important that people engage at this stage, to make sure we get the best layout."

More than 1,000 council staff vacated the 14-storey building, erected in 1968, for the newly-refurbished Marischal College building in 2011.
