For a little over 60 years the British Legion have run the parking in an area of Aberdeen called Golden Square. This nets around £110,000+ a year that went to helping ex servicemen in Aberdeen and surrounding areas. This is by far the biggest monetary income for the Aberdeen Branch. As part of the councils cost cutting exercise, the council has decided that they now want that revenue, have kicked the Legion out and are now going to run the parking themselves. To add insult to injury, the fees will now come in line with the rest of Aberdeen and triple over night.
