House Alterations within Conservation Area

Posted on April 27, 2020

Albyn Architects have submitted a planning application for alterations to this house, in Footdee, which must have one of the best views in Aberdeen!

As the house is situated within the Footdee conservation area, planning permission is required for any external changes, including replacement windows, doors or rooflights.

Conservation areas are areas of special architectural or historical interest. The Council designates these areas to ensure their character and appearance is preserved and enhanced. Trees within conservation areas are also protected and consent is required to alter or remove them.

There are eleven conservation areas in Aberdeen: -

  • Albyn Place and Rubislaw
  • Bon Accord and Crown Street
  • Cove Bay
  • Ferryhill
  • Footdee
  • Great Western Road
  • Marine Terrace
  • Old Aberdeen
  • Pitfodels
  • Rosemount and Westburn
  • Union Street
