Council to consult on proposals for potential Gypsy/Travellers halting sites
Councillors today [Wednesday 06 March] agreed to take forward plans for potential halting sites for Gypsy/Travellers.
At a meeting of full council it was agreed to:
approve the potential sites at Blackdog, Howes Road, Scotstown Road Recycling Centre and the former council depot at Springhill Road and remit to officers to undertake a consultation process with the affected Community Councils and report back to the August council meeting with the outcome of these discussions;
instruct officers to establish a stakeholder working group for the purpose of using a scoring matrix to examine the viability and feasibility of each site option and report back to the August council meeting with the results from this process;
note the joint work that is continuing with Aberdeenshire Council.
