This week we have A presentation on this will be given from Aye Aberdeen member, Ishbel Shand, speaking on behalf of the newly formed "Friends of St Fitticks".

An announcement was made by Sir Ian Wood in "Energy Voice" on 24th January of this year, of plans for an energy transition zone in the land surrounding the partially built Aberdeen Harbour Extension. The oil tycoon claims this would "create thousands of jobs". The land in question is green belt and green-space network. Residents are particularly concerned over the inclusion of St Fittick's Community Park, Torry, and Doonies Rare Breeds Farm, Cove, in the proposals. These have now been redesignated for industrial use in the proposed local development plan, which will come into force in early 2022. A local activist, Renee Slater, set up a face-book page to oppose the development. Some group members have been researching the background to the proposal.
