Almost 900 people have helped shed light on plans to showcase Aberdeen’s landmarks.
Residents were asked to help shape a creative lighting strategy across Aberdeen as part of the City Centre Masterplan project.
Aberdeen in Colour is looking to enhance landmarks, streetscapes and cultural experiences to make the city more welcoming.
Award-winning design consultancy Steensen Varming, responsible for the lighting of the Sydney Opera House, has been appointed to develop the strategy.
Respondents could pick up to three lighting styles from a choice of six for each theme.
The most popular style choices among the six themes were: Illuminating Iconic Architecture, Engaging Public Spaces At Night, Surprising Lighting Features, Illuminating Bridges, Activating Laneways, and Seasonal Responsive Lighting.
Feedback from the 10-day survey, which drew 895 responses, will be used to help draw up the strategy and an implementation plan.
A report will go to councillors for consideration early next year.
Councillor Marie Boulton said: “It’s wonderful that so many people made the effort to complete the survey for this Masterplan project.
“Knowing the kind of lighting treatment residents and businesses would like to see will help inform the work being taken forward by Steensen Varming.
“The level of enthusiasm for this project, and the high number of positive responses, suggests people are passionate about making the most of Aberdeen’s stunning streetscape – whatever the time of day or year.”
The City Centre Masterplan project is being brought forward by the city council along with Aberdeen Inspired.
The full results will be considered when drafting the strategy.
School pupils also shared their views on proposals, with youngsters at the city’s Middleton Park Primary, St Joseph’s Primary, Skene Square Primary and Harlaw Academy taking part in the survey.
