ABERDEEN City Council has written to all residents and owners in properties of a particular construction type in the Balnagask area of the city affected by RAAC in roof construction.

Specialist structural engineers inspected 30 properties in the area and found evidence of RAAC, with further inspections now being required to determine what the next stage will be.

An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said, “The council will continue to do all we can to provide support and advice, and we will continue to be guided by advice as matters progress.”

In the letter sent to council tenants, the local authority said it will make arrangements for access for the surveys. Property owners are advised to seek their own surveys. The on-going exercise to check all of Aberdeen City Council’s 23,000 housing stock has not found any other RAAC so far, it added.
