Costing around £6.5 million the project will light up 12 areas of the city such as Castlegate, Union Street, Belmont Street, Langstane Place, Correction Wynd, Golden Square, the banks of the River Dee and SNicholas Kirk.

The project, backed by Aberdeen council officials this month, aims to also support the night-time economy and hopes to attract residents and tourists to the city centre and its key features. 

Guidelines also aim to make it possible for more areas to be lit up in the future such as Bridge Street and George Street. 

Award-winning consultancy Steensen Varming, responsible for the lighting of the Sydney Opera House, was appointed to develop the strategy for the project.   

No official date of when the project will start has been given but looking for potential funding has begun.
