    Abstract

    Although Aberdeen can trace its origins, many of its buildings and street patterns back over hundreds of years, it is the last three decades that have radically affected and shaped the modern city. The discovery of North Sea oil and the decision by the major oil companies to centre their exploration and development activities in Aberdeen has provided a unique opportunity, though one that has brought associated and significant problems of growth management. Oil-related prosperity has been accompanied by growing economic disparities, pressure for new housing and commercial development and demands for investment in transport infrastructure. The management of development versus conservation tensions as well as the need to ensure oil-related growth benefits the whole community, have led to unique and groundbreaking public-private partnerships in the city. As the significance of oil in the local economy wanes attention is now increasingly being focused on how to ensure the longer term prosperity of the city. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
