Dunmail Road Car Park Consultation
Aberdeen City Council proposes to introduce pay and display parking within the off-street car park on Dunmail Avenue (Cults). The charges will be applicable from 8.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Saturday. The cost for a period up to a maximum of 2 hours will be £1.00. The Council estimate charging could generate up to £12,000 p.a. for their funds.
The Community Council and your local Aberdeen City Councillors are opposed to these plans to charge and have responded by suggesting time restricted parking of up to 2 hours with no charges, to encourage turnover of spaces for shoppers and care workers serving residents in Cults. We are encouraging residents to let the Aberdeen City Council know their views on the proposal which is now out for public consultation and comment. Click here to see the Consultation Document. Comments must be received by 24 June 2016.
Litter Pick Saturday 7 May.
Seven Community Councillors, Members of the Rotary Club of Aberdeen Deeside and the public met at the old Cults Station Yard. Pick-me-ups, gloves and bags were provided by ACC. The areas covered were the Old Deeside railway line from Bieldside through to Pitfodels/ Station Road Pitfodels/ North Deeside Road from Pitfodels to Cults, around Cults Shops and the perimeter Road Cults Primary School. A total of 12 bags of litter were collected. This is less than the last session held last year which is encouraging. Another session will be held later in the year.
