A SCOTTISH city will not name any projects after the late Queen Elizabeth, councillors have decided.

Aberdeen Council’s Finance and Resources Committee decided there were “no suitable” projects to name after the late monarch, the Press and Journal reported.

Queen Elizabeth died at her private estate of Balmoral in Aberdeenshire in September 2022.

Five options had been earmarked by officials as potential projects to take the late monarch’s name after Tory plans to name Union Terrace Gardens in her honour were not taken forward.

The options were the replacement Hazlehead Academy, the new playpark at Hazlehead Park, the proposed new primary school at Newhills, the new Riverbank primary school, and the new urban park at Aberdeen beach.

Whichever project was chosen, the committee agenda stated that it was “expected that the cost [of the renaming] will be accommodated within existing budgets”.

At a meeting on January 30, councillors had been due to “consider the option for capital projects that could be named after Queen Elizabeth II; note the process for naming a capital project after Queen Elizabeth II; and agree which project to be named after Queen Elizabeth II”.

However, councillors on the resources committee said none of the projects were suitable.

The option of naming a development project after the late monarch remains open moving forward.

While the council will review each year whether any projects could be named after the late monarch, councillors agreed that the public should be given a say before any final decisions are made.
