The upper pair of lights on the sign are remaining on constantly. There have been a number of faults with this warning sign in recent years and I have […]

Potholes, potholes and more potholes

by Ian Yuill on 6 April, 2018

Thank you to everyone who has told me about potholes and broken areas of road surface over the last couple of weeks.

Wheelie bin collections – what’s your view?

by Ian Yuill on 23 November, 2017

You may have seen press reports that Aberdeen City Council may change household wheelie bin collections from once a fortnight to only once every three weeks. Aberdeen’s Liberal Democrat councillors would oppose changing to collections once every three weeks. Residents’ Survey I would like to hear what you think of the current domestic waste and […]

I am delighted that the council’s Communities, Housing and Infrastrucure Committee has agreed to begin the process of introducing a mandatory 20mph speed limit on all the roads lying between Broomhill Road and Holburn Street. Unlike “20’s Plenty” the proposed 20mph speed limit would be legally enforceable. The roads which would be included in the […]
