As we head towards the spring months Garthdee community council is as busy as every representing the community, working on new projects, and ensuring the voice of Garthdee is being heard at every level. Remember, our meetings are open to the public and are the second Tuesday of every month, 7pm, at Inchgarth community centre.
There is a public forum section on the agenda where members of the public can raise issues and ask questions. So please do come along, a warm welcome assured.
CONSULTATION ON GARTHDEE ROAD CYCLE/WALKING/WHEELING.
Garthdee community council has lodged our views as part of the consultation which offers 6 options for a cycle, walking, or wheeling lane to be created either on Garthdee Road or the riverside. We encourage everyone to log online and to give your views, it is vitally important that you do this please, as whatever is decided, and if it ever gets off the ground, it could have huge implications for your community. Some positive, some negative.
Garthdee community councils position on this matter is that we strongly oppose any disruption to the road, any narrowing of the road, and our preferred option is that a path should be built along the riverside, coming through RGU campus (if safe and possible) and a new path to be created on the left hand side of the pavement running alongside RGU, to join onto the railway line. click this link to go to the consultation and give YOUR VIEWS. https://consultation.aberdeencity.gov.uk/place/copy-of-bridge-of-dee-west-active-travel-study/
NEW BUS STOP ON GARTHDEE ROAD.
As previously reported, we are delighted that after several years of fighting, there is a new stop on Garthdee Road for those wishing NOT to get off within the RGU campus. It has been reported that bus drivers were not stopping to let people on or off at this stop, however, we have communicated with first bus who have kindly and quickly responded with assurances to fix this problem. Let us know if the problem persists.
SPRING EDITION OF THE AB10 NEWS BROCHURE.
We are looking for businesses to take our low cost and effective adverts in our fantastic community news brochure, which isn't just distributed to 2000 local homes, but also sent to hundreds of organisations online, and also thousands of individuals via email. You can see the costs to promote via our new brochure to the left, and that it's a very decent cost for the coverage you get. Email us with your advert size, text, and photo and we will do the rest. Ps...all profit from the brochure is invested back into helping small community groups, so you aren't just helping yourself, you are helping others too! win win!
COMMUNITY COUNCIL CREATED MENTAL HEALTH INFO BOOKLET.
Mental health affects many people in society, in many different ways, but one thing is sure, very few of us will escape having issues or family and friends at some point in our lives. To ensure people have as much information on support services as possible, the community council- thanks to RGU students, are creating a little booklet that will be shared online, emailed to people, and distributed around the doors in order to ensure people have access to the information on who can help. Just another little project that the community council is involved in, and our thanks goes to the RGU students for their work.
REMEMBER TO CHECK THE COMMUNITY DIRECTORY...IT'S FULL OF INFORMATION ON BUSINESSES, CHARITIES, AND SERVICES.
