A special meeting of Aberdeen City Council to discuss the controversial Marischal Square development will be held on Thursday 5 March.

It was called by SNP group leader Callum McCaig after a motion to get the project onto the full council agenda was ruled incompetent.

Developers Muse are behind the £107m hotel, office and retail project.

Planning permission for the project was granted last year.

Opponents argue it would block the view of historic Marischal College and Provost Skene House.

It would be built on a city centre site created by the demolition of the former St Nicholas House council headquarters.
