Culter Community Council held their September meeting on Thursday 16th September. The following items of interest were discussed. Full minutes will be available to view on the Culter Community Council website in due course.

Concern raised about the environmental impact of weedkiller being used by Aberdeen City Council (ACC). Cllr Malik will follow up.

Concerns were raised about Peterculter Medical Practice with a number of issues being raised. These included difficulty getting through on the phone, availability of face to face appointments, incoming calls from the surgery appearing as “no caller id” (and therefore not being answered as they may be scam calls) and general comments around the way in which eConsult works and what options are available to those not able to access it. Some suggestions were discussed as to how the current systems could be improved and these will be followed up with the Medical Centre.

The online consultation regarding the proposed Tillyoch development has closed. This included online Q&A sessions and feedback forms being sent in by members of the community. An ‘In Principle’ planning application by the developer is anticipated in October, following a meeting with ACC. There will then be a 21 day period when residents can make comments to the council.

Resilience: Culter Community Council is updating its volunteer database.

Culter Community Council will be offering £750 to local groups and organisations in recognition of the loss of income resulting from cancellation of the Culter Gala.
