West Locality

West Locality Map

West Locality covers the suburbs of Kingswells, Hazlehead, Lower Deeside (Peterculter, Cults, Milltimber, and Bieldside), Braeside and Mannofield, as well as the West End of Aberdeen City Centre (Queens Cross, Craigiebuckler and Seafield). 

Many of the areas retain a village feel about them and a strong sense of identity whilst situated only a few miles west of the city centre.  A number of communities within the locality border Aberdeenshire. There are many scenic attributes including distinctive granite buildings and popular green spaces such as Hazlehead Park, Deeside Golf Club and the Deeside Line (alongside the River Dee).

Locality Plans

The partnership is required to involve representatives of a locality in decisions or changes that are likely to significantly affect service provision in the area. To help achieve this, Locality Leadership Groups (LLGs) have been established in all of our four localities within Aberdeen City.  The role of the LLG includes developing and ensuring appropriate connections and partnerships across the locality to improve the health and wellbeing of the locality population and reduce the health inequalities that we know impact negatively on people‚Äôs lives. The group works with services and communities and has a direct line of communication to the strategic planning group of the ACHSCP.
