A year ago I was asked to undertake investigations into the history of the Union Terrace Gardens in Aberdeen on behalf of the Friends of Union Terrace Gardens. Today, the Friends have published the report which examines the legal history of the site and concludes that it is common good land and that court approval may have to be sought if Aberdeen City Council wishes to pursue its City Garden project.
