Westhill and Elrick Community website

Welcome to the Westhill and Elrick Community website.

This site has been established by Westhill & Elrick Community Council (W&ECC) to bring together and promote the diverse range of community groups active in the area. It is hoped that as the website progresses more and more local groups will join us to promote what they do in the local community and that this site will be a one-stop shop to find out what's going on in Westhill & Elrick.

New Fire Alarm System For Westhill Shopping Centre

Each retail and office unit in the Westhill Shopping Centre will receive a modern smoke or heat detection system.

This comes after it was discovered that the fire alarm system, which currently serves the shopping centre, does not comply with Fire Regulations.

The installation works will begin on Monday 8th September and last for approximately 8weeks.

Work To Extend Westhill Shopping Centre To Begin Next Month

The project will commence on Monday 15th September with an estimated completion date of 3rd April 2015.

Local residents and tenants who have questions or would like any more information are encouraged to attend a meeting on 11th September at Aberdeen Radiation Protection Ltd, Westhill Shopping Centre.

The meeting will start at 4:30pm and will be held on the first floor (Suite 3).
