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 […]

Council roads staff will shortly be circulating to residents the results of the survey they carried out several month ago of residents’ views about the possible introduction of a one way system on Salisbury Terrace and the section of Gray Street between Broomhill Road and Great Western Road.

Abergeldie Road care home planning application

by Ian Yuill on 17 September, 2017

I have been asked by residents what the current status is of the planning application to build a care home on the empty site at the junction of Abergeldie Road and Holburn Street.

A number of the “Cyclists, pass with care” signs which used to be placed along the Deeside Way have disappeared. As a result of this […]

Part of Abergeldie Road resurfaced

by Ian Yuill on 5 June, 2017

I am pleased that part of Abergeldie Road has been resurfaced. Sadly though, the area resurfaced did not include the badly broken area at the junction of Abergeldie Road and Abergeldie Terrace. I will continue to press for this, and other crumbling roads and uneven pavements in our area, to be properly repaired and resurfaced. Sign […]

Wheelie bin profusion

by Ian Yuill on 1 May, 2017

Whilst, after a few initial problems, the new arrangements for collecting waste and material for recycling from people’s homes is now mostly working well, I have had several complaints from people about the very large number of wheelie bins now sitting on some streets. This is a particular problem on roads with tenements or blocks […]

Yet more potholes reported

by Ian Yuill on 21 April, 2017

I have called on council staff to repair potholes and broken areas of road surface on Nellfield Place, Deeside Park and Deeside Drive. Problems with potholes and broken road surfaces will only get worse until the council invests more in repairing and resurfacing crumbling roads and pavements. My Liberal Democrat colleagues and I will continue to […]
