Bridge of Don is situated to the north of Aberdeen. With a population pushing 20,000, and rising, it is one of the largest suburbs in Europe.

You can see a map of the area covered here and some information about the area on these pages.

The Bridge of Don Community Council is a statutory elected body which exists to listen to your views and ideas and to work with our local councillors, MPs, MSPs, officials, the police and others to tackle the local issues that concern you. Community Councils are voluntary organisations set up by statute by the Local Authority and run by local residents to act on behalf of its area.

Bridge of Don Community Council is not involved in national or local politics. First and foremost, it’s made up of people who care about the community, who want local residents and businesses to have a voice, and to promote the feeling of belonging. As well as representing the community to the local authority, the Bridge of Don Community Council aims to facilitate activities which promote the well-being of the community. But the community council members don’t know everything that’s going on in the area, and can’t be aware of all issues. We need you to tell us. The Bridge of Don has grown hugely in size since the Community Council first started, and it’s more important then ever to retain the Bridge of Don identity. For that we need as many people as possible to get involved: new ideas and new members are always welcome!

Please come along to our meetings. You don’t have to have an issue to raise — you don’t even have to say anything. Just come along and listen if you want, to see what’s going on. You may find it an interesting way to spend a couple of hours!

At this time, because we need to restrict numbers, if you wish to attend a meeting, please email  first so that we can keep track of numbers. Alternatively, residents with questions or concerns on community matters can email through queries and we’ll get back to you.  Contact us via or via a private message on our Facebook page. Agendas and minutes will continue to be published – see the Meetings tab for more info and meeting dates
