Deeside Gardens leaves a safety risk

by Ian Yuill on 6 December, 2018

After being contacted by a concerned local resident, I have asked the council to remove the leaves on the path that leads down through Deeside Gardens from North Deeside Road. Whilst council staff are already working to remove fallen leaves across the city by the end of the year, I believe these leaves need to […]

Good news – Deeside Park set to be resurfaced

by Ian Yuill on 30 November, 2018

I have been urging the council to properly resurface Deeside Park for some time and I am delighted that I have now been told that Deeside Park “will be resurfaced as part of next year’s programme”. This means that Deeside Park should be resurfaced between April 2019 and March 2020. In the meantime, I will continue […]

by Ian Yuill on 19 October, 2018

Nominations for the elections to the four community councils covering our area have now closed – with mixed results. In Braeside and Mannofield, eight people were nominated for the twelve available places. This means these residents are “elected unopposed” and will serve as community councillors for the next three years. You can find details of […]

Deeside Park road surface a disgrace

by Ian Yuill on 7 July, 2018

I have again urged the Roads Service to resurface Deeside Park as soon as possible. The road surface has completely disinterested in many places. It makes no sense at all to keep patching Deeside Park – it should be resurfaced. Sadly roads and pavements across our area and the rest of Aberdeen continue to crumble […]

I have now received replies from council staff to the many enquiries I made on behalf of residents about problems with wheelie bin collections over Christmas and the New Year. Unfortunately the replies are all the same – with only the street or area name changed. This is the reply I received about problems with wheelie […]

by Ian Yuill on 7 January, 2018

I have been contacted by residents from many parts of our area – including Airyhall, Braeside, Broomhill and Ruthrieston – about problems with wheelie bins not being emptied on schedule over the Christmas and New Year. There seem to have been particular problems with the brown wheelie bin collections which had been rescheduled from Christmas […]

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 […]

by Ian Yuill on 3 November, 2017

Residents have told me how pleased they are that Deeside Gardens has been resurfaced. Whilst it is great that this work has finally been carried out, roads like Deeside Park and Deeside Drive are also in urgent need of resurfacing. I will keep pressing the council’s roads staff to resurface and properly repairs broken and […]

by Ian Yuill on 28 September, 2017

Work to resurface Deeside Gardens is set to begin on Monday 9th October. Whilst it is great news that this long overdue work is to take place, it will mean there will be restrictions on driving and parking on Deeside Gardens whilst the resurfacing work is carried out. There will be a ban on driving […]
