Parks, gardens and roads in Aberdeen to get £400,000 facelift

Parks, gardens and roads in Aberdeen are to have £400,000 spent on them.

Aberdeen City Council said the housing and environment committee under-spend would be used to pay for a range of environmental projects.

Half the money will be used for planting, refurbishment work in parks and gardens, and shrubs and rose beds.

Work will also be carried out on fencing and railing replacements, roundabout and road maintenance, and verge improvements.

Convener Neil Cooney said: "This is a rare opportunity to give the city a makeover, particularly areas that in the past we may not have had the resources to focus on."
