The Aberdeen City Centre Masterplan is a regeneration blueprint that is transforming the city centre while conserving its proud heritage. The goal is greater prosperity and a better quality of life for all.
The Masterplan was shaped following extensive public consultation and unanimously approved by Aberdeen City Council in June 2015.
Eight objectives feed through the Masterplan:
- Changing perceptions
- Growing the city centre employment base
- A metropolitan outlook
- A living city for everyone
- Made in Aberdeen
- Revealing waterfronts
- Technologically advanced and environmentally responsible
- Culturally distinctive
In all, it has 50 projects that range from delivering enhanced civic space to helping support exciting new events like the Great Aberdeen Run. Consultancy BDP, which drew up the Masterplan, estimated that over the next 25 years it could attract £1 billion of investment - the bulk from the private sector - and create thousands of new jobs.
The City Centre Masterplan is helping make Aberdeen an even better place to live, work, visit and do business.
