Welcome

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.

Councillor Update Report

Road Safety

Brodiach and increased traffic flow along with vehicles exceeding the 30mph speed limit.

Receiving regular complaints from residents affected by the increase in traffic.
Brodiach is being used as a `rat run` to avoid the A944 road works.
I have contacted the local police and also the Garioch Roads Officers.
Awaiting a response.
 
What the residents would like is for the Brodiach to be a one way. Thus block of the access at the A944.
 
Education

Elrick Primary School is to be capped at 442 pupils, currently 421.

The implications for this is that out of zone requests will be given a lower priority.

Faster broadband coming to Westhill and Elrick

You’ve seen the Openreach vans dotting about, you’ve seen the engineers by the green cabinets – and may have wondered what it was all about. Now we can tell you that all this activity means high speed internet access is on its way to Westhill and Elrick.

Thanks to the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme, residents will soon be able to reap the benefits of the next generation of broadband.  Fibre broadband will give you the speed and reliability to work from home, to watch video content online and see as well as talk to your friends and family.

The village of Kirkton of Skene will be one of the first in Scotland, and the first outside the Highlands, to benefit from the £410m programme. Further information about the project can be found at www.digitalscotland.org

On Monday April 14 in Kirkton of Skene between 11am and 5pm the Openreach Fibre Broadband Showcase will be in the car park opposite the Village Shop for the cabinet launch ceremony. Visiting the Showcase will give residents the opportunity to find out how they can get fibre broadband, the benefits it brings, as well as find out how the technology works.

Aim

Delays caused by temporary Traffic lights on Old Skene Road

It has been observed that the temporary traffic lights on Old Skene Road. (Located about 250 meters to the west of the police station.) have been causing delays at peak times.
 
Dave Fisher of the WECC  tried to contact Openreach on the phone but found it impossible so went to where they were working opposite the Shepherds Rest. One of the supervisors was there and he contacted his office to see if, as he requested, the traffic lights could be at least switched off and together with the cones be put on the verges until work is ready to commence.
