Views wanted in Torry

Residents in Torry are from Monday June 2015 being asked what the improvements they want to have in the area.

Aberdeen City Council is holding a one-week consultation with people in the neighbourhood to find out what is important to them.

People from the City Council and partner organisations are capturing people's views using a range of media including iPads, on-line surveys, and paper surveys.

The consultation event is being held to better understand what is important to the residents of Torry, how they feel about living there and what improvements can we make.

Aberdeen City Council Regeneration spokesman Councillor Ross Grant said: "We want to find out what the people in Torry think about their area and what we could do for the area.

"We'd want as many people as possible to take part so we can hear their views to help shape what's needed for the area in the future."

This is the first step in alonger consultation process which will also include site visits to see other community hubs amongst other approaches.

Partner organisations assisting with the consultation include Torry Community Council, Balnagask Community Centre, Walker Road Primary School, Old Torry Community Centre, Sport Aberdeen, Station House Media Unit, the local medical practice, and Torry St Fitticks Church.
