Martin Dalziel said, “Countesswells is a unique project which has gained recognition across the country for its innovative funding model and its approach to planning and place-making. I’m excited and honoured to have the opportunity to build on the significant progress to date.

“I am passionate about place-making and admire the fresh, innovative approach taken by CDL, which is based on traditional values and is creating a real sense of place with an authentic community spirit. I am looking forward to working with key stakeholders in the public sector to make sure that Countesswells is a truly special place to live and a major asset for Aberdeen.”
