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.

Exciting developments at our shopping centre !

Although trees edging the car park will be chopped down, this will open up the vista to our beautiful Denman Park.  We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful green space right in the heart of our town.

Planning Application 3560 @ Arnhall/East Fiddie Farmhouse - Reporter's site visit next week

This site visit will help the Reporter decide in favour of the Developer's or the Beaton family. It will also illustrate who is really controlling development in Westhill. We await the outcome with great interest and hope that natural justice will prevail. Good luck Fraser and Morag.

7000 Premises in Aberdeenshire can now access fibre broadband - Find out more at Showcase Events @ Inverurie and Aberdeen


Since April this year, over 7000 premises in Aberdeenshire have been “passed by fibre” within the Rest of Scotland programme – most of these are in Garioch, with 3299 being in Westhill and its immediate environs and the majority of the others being in Kintore, Kemnay and Inverurie

Internet service providers are able to access this publicly funded infrastructure on common terms and conditions, so there should be some degree of competition in these locations to offer fibre based services.
