Union Street Conservation Area

Conservation Area - Union Street, Aberdeen

The conservation area comprises the original settlement area of 'New Aberdeen' on the banks of the River Dee, parts of which are still evident today at the main port area and the original settlement around St Katherine's Hill.

The conservation area also includes one of the most important examples of early nineteenth century planned streets in Scotland with the development of Union Bridge and Union Street. The street is one of the engineering feats of the early nineteenth century and contains many of the City's most important and impressive buildings.

The conservation area contains more Category A listed buildings than any other conservation area in Aberdeen. The conservation area boundary includes the entire length of Union Street as well as areas of land to the north and south that are linked to Union Street by their physical and historic connections.
