WHY KEEP UNION TERRACE GARDENS?
Union Terrace Gardens is a wonderful and unique, Victorian city center park that is under threat of destruction to make way for a new city public area that will be a mix between "an Italian piazza and Central Park"...
Aberdeen City Council and an un-elected quango, ACSEF, want to pass ownership of the gardens to a private company and replace them with a large concrete structure.
ACSEF alone has cost over half a million pounds of public money so far, despite claiming to be funded by both the public and private sector.
The people of Aberdeen voted against the City Square Project 55% to 45%, despite many claims that the voting process was seriously flawed with answers defaulting to yes when voters and clearly commented "no" to the project. Despite this a much larger percentage of citizens voted than in other major consultations (the Edinburgh Trams for example), but Aberdeen City Council have decided to push forward with the destruction of the Gardens regardless.
This website is a place for all those interested in the campaign to get involved and help save this precious park.
