Organisation

The Nestrans Board is made up of four Councillors from Aberdeen City Council, four Councillors from Aberdeenshire Council, and four non-Councillor members appointed in a personal capacity by the Minister for Transport following open advertisement and selection. Following the local government elections on 4 May 2017, both Councils have nominated new representatives to the Nestrans Board. The new Chair and Vice Chairs were elected at the Board meeting on 26 June 2017.
