Freedom of the City procedures to be reviewed


Aberdeen city councillors have agreed to review the procedures governing the conferring of Freedom of the City.

City Council Leader Councillor Barney Crockett won unanimous support for his proposal that the Freedom of the City Working Group should meet to consider a revised process for dealing with nominations for the honour.

Councillor Crockett was also unanimously supported in his proposal to the Full Council meeting that no further action should be taken meantime on the three recent nominations – golfer Paul Lawrie, ex-footballer Denis Law and Professor Paul Mealor of the University of Aberdeen.
