Planners have recommended approval for Aberdeen Football Club's new stadium on the outskirts of the city.

The Dons hope to build the stadium, capable of holding about 21,000 fans, at a cost of up to £40m, at Loirston Loch in the south of Aberdeen.

However, there have been more than 100 letters of objection.

The council meets on Wednesday 23 February, with potential economic benefits among the reasons for the recommendation for approval.

AFC is seeking permission for the "iconic" stadium which would include a gym, a club shop, museum and cafe.

The plan is for the whole facility to be lit at night by a red glow.

The application follows a public consultation.

Scottish ministers will have the final say.
