MORE than 22,000 council homes in Aberdeen are being reviewed by independent structural engineers for the presence of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC).

Work to date has established that RAAC is likely to have been used in around 500 properties in Balnagask. However, Aberdeen City Council said that it is ‘not expected’ that many more homes in the city were built using RAAC.

An Aberdeen City Council spokesperson added, “We are liaising with tenants, private owners and occupiers, and landlords as a matter of priority.

“We will continue to keep residents informed and update our website with the latest information.”
