How can we help you...


Aberdeen City Council welcomes the promotion of activities taking place within our City. Successful activities are important for a buoyant economy and for quality of life. However, the need to promote has to be balanced with the need to maintain a clean and welcoming city for everyone. With this in mind Aberdeen City Council has developed an Anti-flyposting Strategy that provides a raft of measures to help you promote your activities without contributing to a deterioration of our City.
