Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy - Main Issues Consultation

Closed 14 Nov 2021

Opened 4 Oct 2021


The Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy is the plan for the development of the City’s transport network over a five-year period. It includes a list of actions to be completed over the 5 year period. It deals with different types and subjects of transport including walking, wheeling, cycling, public transport, freight, taxis, motorcycles, car sharing, car clubs, car and van use, parking, maintenance and low carbon fuels. 

The Local Transport Strategy for Aberdeen follows the National and Regional transport policies, strategies, plans and projects and takes account of transport’s relationship with the economy, environment, health, people and communities.  

To see what has been achieved as part of the current Local Transport Strategy, go to Local transport strategy | Aberdeen City Council and look at our guide Aberdeen Local Transport Leaflet_0.pdf (aberdeencity.gov.uk)

Why your views matter

The current Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy ran from 2016 and the time has come to start work on its replacement. To make sure it best reflects the needs and wants of people, we need your help to do this. We want to understand what you consider to be the main issues currently facing the transport network in Aberdeen as well as what you think works well, what needs improvement and how you think things could be improved. Please draw on your experiences of using the transport network in Aberdeen when answering the questions. 


As part of the development of the next Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy, Aberdeen City Council (ACC) will offer you different opportunities to submit your views and comments. These opportunities will range from the current consultation stage, the Main Issues Report, where your views will be used to inform the production of the draft Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy where the set view of ACC has been established.

The Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005 also requires us to consult on a Strategic Environmental Assessment Environmental Report.

By submitting a response to the consultation, you understand that ACC can use the information provided in this form, including personal data, as part of the development of the next Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy. ACC will not share or disclose any personal data about you to any organization or person unless it is authorized or required to do so by law.

The data controller for this information is ACC. We understand our legal basis for processing this information as Article 6(1)(c) of the General Data Protection Regulation as a Local Transport Strategy allows the Council to plan the transport network for Aberdeen, while it is also mentioned in and helps to inform other statutory documents including the Local Development Plan and associated guidance. The data on the form will be used to inform the preparation of the next  Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy. You may also be contacted about the comments you have made.  If you chose not to provide your contact details, your comments will still be valid but we will not be able to contact you in the future.

Responses will be stored electronically or in locked cabinets in Marischal College.

Aberdeen City Council will only keep your personal data for as long as is needed. Data will be kept until the emerging Local Transport Strategy is approved – this is likely to be around 2 years following its adoption, so by the end of 2023. Following this, data will be disposed of in a secure manner.


You’ve got legal rights about the way ACC handles and uses your data, which include the right to ask for a copy of it, and to ask us to stop doing something with your data. Please contact the Council’s Data Protection Officer by e-mailing DataProtectionOfficer@aberdeencity.gov.uk or writing to Data Protection Officer, Aberdeen City Council, Governance, Level 1 South, Marischal College, Broad Street, Aberdeen, AB10 1AB.
