The future of Aberdeen is of great concern.
For years the city has been an economic hub thriving from oil and gas money. But the damage caused by the industry’s downturn and coronavirus lockdowns has taken its toll.
Union Street is no longer the shining retail haven it once was, businesses are closing due to economic pressures brought on by cost of living pressures and anti-social behaviour is plaguing our streets.
But there is hope.
Ambitious plans have been mooted to help lift Aberdeen from its knees.
The city centre masterplan is just the start.
A new football stadium is proposed for Aberdeen’s beach front – estimated to boost the local economy by up to £1 billion.
And a group of like-minded people have come together to ensure regeneration is taken seriously in Aberdeen city centre.
There is also huge potential for the region to emerge from the oil and gas capital of Europe into the renewables capital of the world.
The Press and Journal and Evening Express believes strongly in helping find solutions to the problems facing the city.
And we pledge to bring you all the latest news on its regeneration, recovery and future right here.
