A coalition administration has been formed by Scottish Conservative and Unionist (11 members), Aberdeen Labour (nine members) and Independent Alliance Group (three members) councillors.

Cllr Barney Crockett has been appointed Lord Provost and Cllr Tom Mason as Depute Provost. Cllr Jennifer Laing has been appointed Council Leader.

Today’s agenda also includes the confirmation of committee conveners and additional appointments to committees and boards.
