Nigg is a developing community south of the River Dee on the outskirts of the City of Aberdeen, situated between the A90 on the west and the A956 on the east. The northern boundary is partially the semi natural lands of Kincorth Hill Nature reserve, itself close to Loirston Loch, a Local Nature Conservation Site (LNCS).
Since the millennium Nigg Community Council has been working hard with local authorities and land owners to ensure the area retains its distinct, inherited community characteristics. The Community Council has created a small viewpoint from which, uniquely, most of the City of Aberdeen can be seen whilst, from elsewhere, views can be enjoyed for over 40 miles up Royal Deeside, to the lofty peak of Lochnagar on the Queen’s Balmoral Estate.
Some acreage within the area of jurisdiction of the Community Council is now open for development of residential and light industrial units. Additionally, a new academy will provide a community focus and amenities that have been missing for over 25 years and that will allow Nigg Community Council itself to develop and expand.
The Community Council meets normally on the second Thursday of every month (except July holidays). The meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
