Aberdeen is a compact city of approximately 189 sq kilometres.It is flanked by 2 major waterways which cut through the city to the sea –
Aberdeen is fortunate to have two Universities; the Macaulay Institute; the Scottish Agricultural College; and Aberdeen College in the city.Through past and present collaboration there is a wealth of knowledge for Aberdeen to draw upon.
Through SURF there is an opportunity to bring the community, landowners and stakeholder groups together in order to improve the city's urban fringes. In addition to this, Aberdeen will complete an Open Space Audit providing information for citizens to understand the quality of the city's public and private open spaces.Aberdeen's participation in the SURF Project can bring tools and experiences that can be shared with partners to enhance trans-national learning.
Develop and promote new methods for assessing and managing open spaces along the River Don corridor, for the benefit of the local economy, environment and communities. The aim was to bring people and organisations together with information, tools and techniques to develop a more collective approach to the planning and management of open spaces along the River Don corridor.
