The Old Aberdeen Community Council is a voluntary body supported by Aberdeen City Council and exists to represent the views and needs of the Old Aberdeen community. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month (except July) at 7.30pm. Our meeting place is normally the second floor of the Old Aberdeen Town House. Please note access is by stair only within this historic building; persons who wish to attend a meeting but unable to climb stairs should contact the community council at the earliest opportunity to ensure we can put an appropriate solution in place.
