Aberdeenshire - from mountain to sea, the very best of Scotland

We serve more than 260,000 residents of Aberdeenshire by delivering high quality services, by spending your money wisely and planning services that will sustain our communities both now and in the future.

Aberdeenshire is a diverse and vibrant region with a strong sense of identity. Our communities are welcoming, safe and culturally diverse. We have an economy that is prosperous and attractive to investors, employers and employees. And our natural environment is the envy of the world, truly capturing the very best from mountain to sea.

We respect the role that everyone plays in Aberdeenshire – whether born and bred here, or those who have chosen to make Aberdeenshire their home. We will continue to promote Aberdeenshire as a place that is open for business and a place where everyone can flourish.

We have a strong sense of responsibility to protect, sustain and enhance the region. We do this in a number of ways: by promoting equity, fairness, transparency, and trust in local services.

The Aberdeenshire Council Plan 2017 – 2022 sets out our priorities for achieving this ambition.
