Supplementary guidance and advice

Many of the PDFs on this page are large files and will take time to open.

A Glossary and Further Reading List are being developed. These will be uploaded in due course.

The documents will be reviewed and updates made to ensure all planning policy references are up-to-date and consistent with the Aberdeen Local Development Plan 2017.
