Improving Ellon’s Public Spaces

Neil Ross Square is seen as the real hub of the town, but the feedback we received indicates that it could be so much more of an asset to the town. If the visual appeal and functionality of the square were improved, the belief is it could be the go-to place to meet friends and spend time there. The owners of Neil Ross Square have a golden opportunity to remodel their asset as Aberdeenshire Council vacate two large units on either side of the square. More work will be necessary in order to develop the ideas, conversations with the landlord, tenants and the local community, along with the relevant agencies need to take place so there is a clear understanding of what would be required and what can realistically be delivered.
