The Old Aberdeen Conservation Area Report is an important document, published in 1993.  It sets out the characteristics of the Old Aberdeen area which, in this interpretation, covers a similar, but not identical area to that covered by your Community Council.

This area is subdivided into five areas they called:


          The Heart,    Spital,     The University,    Balgownie,     Seaton Park


…..  and goes on to make proposals as to how development should be managed in each area, including the sort of development that would be acceptable.


The document may be downloaded here: CONSERVATION AREA  REPORT 1993

Please be aware that this is a large file, around 15MB, so could take some time to download.



This Conservation Area Report was then extensively revised and updated in 2015
