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.

A 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.
