Aberdeen City Centre Masterplan

Transforming Our City Centre

Aberdeen City Centre Masterplan

Home, Grown

24/06/17 Union Street Aberdeen

Aberdeen is an ancient city that grew up around two great rivers, the Dee and the Don, which flow into the North Sea. Its hinterland stretches from the great wilderness of the Cairngorm Mountains to one of the world’s most impressive coastlines.

The City Region is home to almost half-a-million people, 230,000 of whom live in Aberdeen

Aberdeen received Royal Burgh status from David I of Scotland (1124–53), opening the door to trade. Fishing, shipbuilding, paper-making, textiles, quarrying, oil and gas exploration and extraction, food science, tourism: for centuries the city has an economic power-house.

The City Centre Masterplan complements a number of other ambitious projects in the region, including a new Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre; the Aberdeen Western Peripehral Route; and the expansion of Aberdeen Harbour.

Aberdeen was the first Scottish local authority to float a bond on the stock market and is to become Scotland’s first gigabit-speed fibre broadband city – digital infrastructure being delivered by the Aberdeen City Region Deal and the private sector.
