Aberdeenshire Council Plan 2017 – 2022

In November 2017 Aberdeenshire Council agreed the council plan. This gives strategic direction to the wider council and will be used to inform decision making in the coming years. The plan is laid out in full below, all centred around the 11 priorities.

On this page you can find out more about how the plan was developed, learn a little more about the sort of things we do day-to-day across Aberdeenshire, and learn about how we are going to measure the success of our priorities. 

We have produced this short animated video to tell the story of our plan and what it means for you.
