Online survey to discuss improved access routes at the Haughs, Turriff

Aberdeenshire Council has been awarded £30,000 from SUSTRANS’ Scotland ‘Places for Everyone’ fund to undertake the concept design phase of Turriff’s Haughs Improved Access Project.

Residents are now being encouraged to participate in an online survey to provide views and comments on concept designs for the improved access route for walking and cycling provision at the Haughs.

The survey will close at midnight on Sunday, April 26.

Survey results will be circulated and be included in a feasibility study which will be produced for the concept design stage of the project later this year.

The overall aim of the project is to inform preferred and specific walking and cycling measures in a bid to see more journeys of this type.

Aberdeenshire Council’s Formartine Area Manager, Elaine Brown, said: “In response to previous community engagement work facilitated by council officers through the work of the Haughs Redevelopment Steering Group, it is fantastic to see the improved access project move forward to concept design phase.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to complete the online survey which will provide us with vital feedback on the proposals.”

The online survey is now live and can be accessed at:
