George Street Draft Mini-Masterplan - Consultation

Closed 28 Apr 2023

Opened 17 Mar 2023

Results expected 28 Apr 2023

Feedback expected 28 Apr 2023


'George Street Connected!' - the George Street area is an important, diverse and vibrant neighbourhood within the city centre. To ensure that its communities are invested in, as well as connected to the delivery of the city centre masterplan and beach projects, Aberdeen City Council approved the George Street draft mini-masterplan in December 2022.

The draft mini-masterplan focuses on the wider George Street area within the city centre boundary - between Gallowgate and Charlotte Street, Spring Garden / Maberley Street and with the Bon Accord Centre to the south. However, immediate and wider influences around the area are also recognised and included.

The draft mini-masterplan puts forward a vision of 'George St Connected!', provides a place-based analysis and proposes a range of regeneration projects to support the neighbourhood because we believe successful places are people focused, have a diverse economy and are within attractive environments that work for everyone.

An vital aim of the city centre masterplan is to create the heart of Aberdeen as a destination and not a through route by re-thinking how places could be accessed and used. Working our way through the inclusive processes of masterplanning consultation and engagement we wish to achieve a consensus amongst residents, businesses and visitors in identifying and endorsing those opportunities for change, and to provide a strong foundation for delivery.

To help with recording your views on the draft mini-masterplan we have provided a few questions on key points, and welcome your feedback which will be used to shape the finalising draft masterplan.

Engagement and consultation will continue until a finalising draft masterplan is complete with updates presented to Council throughout 2023.
