Commenting on the decision taken this afternoon (Wednesday) by Aberdeen City Council to return to COSLA, COSLA President Councillor Alison Evison said:  “The first thing to say is that I am absolutely delighted with the decision taken by Aberdeen City Council today. It is my absolute pleasure to welcome them back into the organisation.

“There is no doubt in my opinion that Scottish Local Government has more chance of success if COSLA has full 32 council membership. That was always my aim and this has now been achieved with the decision taken by Aberdeen City Council this afternoon.

“This was rightly and properly a democratic decision for the council to take and it is wonderful that they have chosen to return to the COSLA fold.

“There can be no denying the real strength in one united local government voice and I look forward to welcoming Aberdeen City to the Leaders meeting this Friday.”
