Launched in November 2017, the Union Street Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) is a five year initiative that aims to restore the majesty of Aberdeen’s main thoroughfare.

CARS is providing financial help to repair and enhancement of the physical fabric of historic properties, ranging from shopfront improvements to the reinstatement of architectural features, employing traditional materials and methods.

The scheme is being funded by Historic Environment Scotland, Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeen Inspired.

City Centre Masterplan Project CM11 aims “to promote the conservation and enhancement of the special historic and architectural heritage of Union Street and to maximise its economic and social value”.
