Here are the notes from our meeting with the council on Monday May 27th. Overall it was a productive meeting with positive feedback from the council about the visualisations we commissioned.
We’ve since released the King Street design and this generated some positive media coverage – Designs unveiled for cycle lanes in Aberdeen city centre. The timing is perfect because the City Growth and Resources Committee meets on Thursday 6th June. You can see the full agenda here but point 11.3 deals with roads.
There is much more we can do like, for example, campaigning for regular car-free Sundays and school traffic-free zones. We discussed both things in the meeting and you’ll see in the notes there are currently no plans for either (with the exception of the annual “In Town without my Car” day).
Right now the focus is on King Street and we now have 500 postcards addressed to Councillor Jenny Laing to distribute for people to post.
If you are able to help with the distribution of these then please contact Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is just the first batch of what we hope will be many.
