Still time to say what you think about the future of Peterhead

Residents and visitors of Peterhead are being asked for their comments on the future of the town as part of a survey by the Buchan Community Planning Partnership.

Some surveys have been sent out by post but people still have the chance to add their views to the online survey at: http://www.ibp.eu.com/peterhead

Those responding to the survey will be entered into a draw to win an iPad Mini and the survey is open until Friday, April 26.

The project has been developed by people who live, work and have an interest in Peterhead with a focus on how the town can be improved.

Buchan Area Committee chairman Councillor Stuart Pratt said: “The Buchan community planning partners have put a lot of work into creating the survey and gathering people’s views and if you care about where you live and the facilities in the town then I urge you to get involved.

“Peterhead has a rich history and an exciting future with new developments planned and it is important that the whole community is engaged in its progression.”

Vice chair Councillor Anne Allan added: “Over a thousand people have already responded to the survey and we want to encourage more people to give their opinions on the focus for the town for the future.

“This is your opportunity to let the people that are involved in investing and supporting Peterhead, such as the council, local business, development trusts and other agencies, know what you think so don’t miss out.”

The Buchan Community Planning Partnership is made up of agencies such as Aberdeenshire Council, Police Scotland, NHS Grampian, and the town’s community council.
