Proposed Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan available online

The draft Local Development Plan for Aberdeenshire is now online. Stonehaven/Dunnottar/Touks and Kinneff are covered in the Kincardine Settlements Statement Part 2, and Catterline is mentioned in the Housing and business development in the Countryside document. Full details can be found here.

The proposals are being presented to the Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee and Infrastructure Services Committee on March 9th and 10th. According to the Aberdeenshire web site, "these draft LDP settlement and site proposals are based on internal and external stakeholder consultation and submissions from the public consultation on the Main Issues Report. These are likely to change as they progress through the Area Committees and Infrastructure Services Committee".

Web site maintenance

Our web hosts will be moving ckdcc.org.uk to a new server some time between  between 18:00 on 26 November 2009 and 06:00 on 27 November 2009 and we will be offline for about an hour at some point during that period. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Feedback on Flooding Sought

Autumn FloodAberdeenshire Council are interested in hearing feedback from coastal Community Councils about any problems encountered during and after the recent exceptional weather. If you would like to contribute your views, please get in touch with us or come along to our next meeting (24th November 2009).

Planning Page Gets a Makeover

RSS FeedThe pages showing planning applications in the CKDCC area has been given a bit of a makeover, and now has colour coded markers on the map to show the status of current planning applications. It also has different tabbed pages for each year to keep things nicely organised. The biggest change, however, is not obvious at first glance. Instead of being entered by hand, planning application details  are now extracted directly from Aberdeenshire Council's planning database by some fiendishly clever software written by Stephen Hall, so the list of applications will remain up to date without any human intervention.

April Meeting

Minutes of March meeting and AGM attached below.

Chairman and Secretary to Step Down

The new Local Development Plan (LDP) continues to dominate the business of the Community Council. So far our attention has been mainly on Stonehaven South and bids around Catterline, but we are now starting to focus on Kinneff and a representative of Alexander Adamson Ltd will be present at the next meeting to discuss bid K116 (adjacent to Fawsyde).

The LDP has not completely taken over, however, and other serious issues such as potholes and the exercising of dogs in Catterline Playing Fields are still being discussed. The Annual Project Grant was also discussed at the last meeting, with the following awards being made;

Community Project Grants

The Community Council has a small amount of money available to local community groups to help fund projects. To apply for funding, please either contact one of your community councillors or apply by email or in writing to the secretary;

Contact details

The grants will be allocated at the meeting on 24th February, so applications will need to have been received before then.
