Kingswells Community Council Elections

The closing date for the Community Council Elections is 4pm on the 9th of September 2021.  If Kingswells cannot attract the minimum amount of residents needed to perform this important function then the Community Council will be closed and we will no longer have representation for the area and community.

Whilst I appreciate that we are all busy this is not a massive commitment on time.  The current KCC have streamlined the systems, levels of emails and  processes to ensure they are fit for purpose and efficient and our finances are compliant and  in great shape now however the more people we have that will support the community council the better as  we will be able to continue to affect change in this lovely area of Aberdeen.

You can access the Community Council Nomination Form at the link below.

Planning Issues

Nestrans – Regional Transport Strategy 2040

The Nestrans – Regional Transport Strategy 2040 is now open for public consultation for ten weeks.

Over the past year, Nestrans has been working in partnership with stakeholders, partners and the public to develop the next Regional Transport Strategy. The plan, known as Nestrans 2040, will shape transport policies and actions for the next 20 years. A copy of their  At a Glance document which will help to give you a flavour of the content of the full draft strategy can be accessed by clicking on the image adjacent or the following link

Due to the ongoing impacts of Covid-19 they will be doing things differently and instead of face to face meetings there will be a focus on virtual engagement.  To assist with this they have established a Virtual Exhibition which will help to guide you through the draft strategy and its supporting documents as well as allow you to ask questions and submit feedback.  The virtual exhibition can be accessed through their consultation website www.nestrans2040.org.uk  

Please feel free to circulate this widely amongst your colleagues and partners who may have an interest in responding to the consultation as they are keen to encourage as wide a range of people participating as possible.  You can also follow progress via their Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.
