The City Centre Masterplan (CCMP) was adopted in June 2015 by Aberdeen City Council.

A number of checks and balances are in place to ensure the CCMP is properly managed and that project timetables and budgets are adhered to.

Capital Programme Board (made up of senior council officers and representatives of partner organisations) oversees delivery and considers project inter-dependency. A City Centre Masterplan Reference Group (which includes external stakeholders and cross-party political representation) scrutinises the Masterplan’s direction of travel against its objectives.

Planning applications for individual CCMP projects are subject to normal planning rules.
