People living in the north-east are being asked for their views on a controversial “café culture” scheme trialled in the heart of Aberdeen.
The three-month try-out closed Belmont Street, Little Belmont Street and Gaelic Lane to traffic from 11am to 6pm seven days a week so businesses could place chairs and tables outside.
Council chiefs granted the space following a request from business organisation, Aberdeen Inspired.
Many welcomed the scheme hoping for a boost to business in the summer weather.
But objectors raised concerns about the possibility of pubs missing deliveries and the loss of disabled parking spaces.
Council deputy leader Marie Boulton said: “We’d love to get feedback from people about what they thought about the Café Culture trial in the Belmont Street area.
“The trial was held to see how popular outside café areas would be as we know many northern European cities have them and we wanted to find out how much of a demand there would be in Aberdeen.”
Aberdeen Inspired chief executive Gary Craig added: “We would like to hear what people thought worked and what they think could be altered or added in an effort to ensure it is as successful and efficient as possible for all involved.”
To provide feedback, e-mail EmiAnderson@aberdeencity.gov.uk, or write to Emily Anderson, City Development Officer, Aberdeen City Council, Business Hub 4, North Marischal College, Broad Street, Aberdeen, AB10 1AB.
Closing dates for comments is Friday, November 20.
Responses will be taken into consideration before another trial is run.
