The City Council is carrying out a formal consultation on whether to proceed with introducing a mandatory 20mph speed limit in the Deeside Gardens area.

The roads included are Deeside Avenue, Deeside Crescent, Deeside Drive, Deeside Gardens, Deeside Lane, Deeside Park, Deeside Place and Deeside Terrace.

If you want to object to this proposal you should send details of your grounds for objection, including your name and address, by e-mail to trafficmanagement@aberdeencity.gov.uk, or alternatively by writing to Traffic Management and Road Safety, Operations and Protective Services, Aberdeen City Council, Business Hub 11, Second Floor West, Marischal College, Broad Street, Aberdeen AB10 1AB.

You can find more on pages 4 and 5 of a document you can download from this page of the City Council website.

All objections must be received by the Council by 28th April. Whilst I am always happy to hear from residents, any objections must be sent directly to the Council and not via me.

    How can a formal consultation take place when the residents in the area have not been informed it is taking place?

      My view is that the Council should deliver letters to homes and businesses in any area which would be affected by a Traffic Order. Sadly that is not the current policy. The proposed Traffic Order has been advertised online and on lamppost signs in the Deeside Gardens area and that meets the legal requirements for notification of a proposed traffic order.

      The main reason I highlighted this formal consultation on my website, on my Facebook page and in the weekly email I send to local residents was to make more people aware of the consultation so that they could respond to it if they wished.
