Welcome to the Marr Community Planning Group

Marr is the largest geographical area in Aberdeenshire and is unique in overlapping with the Cairngorms National Park.  Marr has a great variety of places, from major settlements within commuting distance of Aberdeen, to much smaller, remote settlements which service their local communities. Marr stretches from Ruthven in the North, to Crathes in the East, to Logie Coldstone in the West and borders both Angus and Kincardine & Mearns in the South.

The Marr Community Planning Group (MCPG) brings together representatives from the Community Planning Partners to identify and address the needs and concerns of those living in the Marr area. For more information about MCPG, including copies of minutes and agendas and the Local Community Plan, please use the links on the left hand side.
