Aberdeen elderly care plan progresses
Plans to put elderly care services in Aberdeen under the control of an 'arms-length' company have taken a step forward.
Councillors agreed the issue should be discussed at the next meeting of the Social Care and Welfare Committee.
A report had asked members to approve the final business case for the firm, to be called Bon Accord Care.
The company - wholly owned by the council but run at arms-length - would employ 647 staff.
Many would transfer over from the council itself.
Some service organisations have expressed concern.
The report said the company should turn in a profit of £2.2m in five years.
