Strategic development plan: Aberdeen City and Shire

Documentation related to the strategic development plan for Aberdeen City and Shire.

Scotland's four largest city regions are covered by SDPs. These set out the long term development of the city regions and deal with cross boundary issues such as housing and transport.

The documents held for this SDP are:

  • Scottish Ministers direction to prepare an SDP
  • Scottish Ministers' decision letter and modifications
  • strategic environmental assessment screening determination
  • habitats regulation appraisal screening report
  • equalities impact assessment declaration
