A public hearing will be held into controversial plans for the redevelopment of the site of the former Aberdeen city council headquarters.

Developers Muse want to build a hotel and office complex on the city centre site following the demolition of St Nicholas house.

The £107m plan also includes building shops and restaurants.

The public hearing will take place at Aberdeen Town House on 28 August.

In 2011, more than 1,000 council staff vacated the 14-storey St Nicholas House building, erected in 1968, for the newly-refurbished Marischal College building.
