Spaces for People
Thank you for your feedback on the proposals from Aberdeen City Council for creating wider pavements to allow continued social distancing in the centre of Cults. We had lots of comments and the view was overwhelmingly against the proposed measures. We have written to Aberdeen City Council expressing our objection to the proposals and asking them to reconsider their plans - our response can be read HERE. We are still interested in hearing your views and feedback on the proposals if you have not yet sent them in so that we can continue to discuss the proposals with Council Officers. You can comment on the post or send an email to us at: email@example.com
The City Council is working under the current Coronavirus Regulations and following Scottish Government guidance on “Safer Public Spaces for Scotland”, and using funding granted to it by the Scottish Government to enable social distancing on streets in shopping areas. It should be noted that these powers are delegated to the Local Authority and they are not controlled by your elected City Councillors.
The proposals affect parking in the centre of Cults, with the removal of most on road parking to allow the creation of wider pavements so that people can pass keeping a distance of 2 m. from others walking or queuing on the pavement. This file shows the areas affected and a summary can be read here.
