Torry folk invited to pound local streets and make them better

People who live and work in Torry are being invited to tour their local streets and have a say on how they could be improved.

Aberdeen City Council is working with Living Streets to review streets and public spaces in Torry.

Residents are invited to take part in a ‘community street audit’ at Tullos Learning Centre at 10am on Monday February 6.

Participants will walk from Tullos Primary School through the Hen Hooses and on to the old Torry Community Centre whilst giving their views on things like lowering kerbs, bollards, broken pavements, overgrown greenery and the positioning of scaffolding as well as identifying areas for improvement around the Hen Hooses.

Aberdeen City Council’s Transport and Regeneration spokesperson Councillor Ross Grant said: “Streets and other public spaces are not just for getting about; they are also places for us to shop, play and socialise with friends and family.

“It is therefore important that our streets are fit for purpose and reflect the needs and wants of our communities.

“The audit will give residents the opportunity to tell us what they like about their streets, environment and other spaces and what they think can be improved on.

“We hope that this exercise will encourage people to get out and about and have better experiences living in and using their local areas.”

Living Streets will compile a report to capture the views of the local community, which will then be considered by the city council.

Residents who are interested in taking part in the community street audit should contact Penny Morriss on penny.morriss@livingstreets.org.uk
