The community came together to discuss with officers from Aberdeen City Council the potential formation of a community group who could take on the running and management of the historic building, built in 1834.
"A great turnout from the community at today's public meeting to discuss the future of Woodside Burgh Hall. There was a clear interest from those present to explore the option of community ownership further. I'm grateful to Stephen Booth & Madelene MacSween of Aberdeen City Council for giving their time to explain how some of the process around asset transfer works and what support would be available.
"The next steps will be for the members of the community who have expressed an interest to meet with council officers to discuss what is involved and determine whether they wish to follow the process through to a formal note of interest.
"The community now has options before them, which was the purpose of the meeting. To ensure that the building was not sold on the open market without the community having a genuine opportunity to take on ownership."
