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.

A new website has been set up to provide information on construction of the AWPR.  You can also subscribe to an electronic newsletter (e-zine) which will be distributed from later this month. Please click on the link below for access and to register for the e-zine.


Some FAQ'S answered on the Town Centre Development

WECC recently asked Aberdeenshire Planners some questions about the new retail development - see these and associated answers below.
1.       What will the elevation facing Westhill Drive look like when completed?  Will it be a plain green ivy living wall or will it have colour through it as per the architect's pictures?

Could you volunteer for a Litter Pick

We held a very successful Litter Pick on Saturday, clearing a rather disgraceful amount of litter from around the centre of our town. The small group of volunteers (including two young boys!) did an amazing job but we could do a lot more with a few extra volunteers. It only takes one hour and is actually a satisfying task. Why not step up and give it a try? Everyone is welcome.
