Community views are being sought on planned improvements to signage in Banchory.

Aberdeenshire Council has been working on a project, with particular emphasis on the town centre.

The project team has drawn up proposals for improving the signage and they would now like to get feedback from the community before any final decisions are made.

People will have a chance to discuss them with council officers at the Library on Monday, November 21, from 2-5pm and Wednesday, November 30, from 4-7pm.

The project has been carried out in partnership with the Banchory Town Team, known as Banchory Town Centre Improvement Group, which is made up of key community representatives and council officials.

It was agreed that the signage, interpretation and streetscape in and around the town centre could benefit from improvements.

The main aim is to encourage more visitors and residents to stop and spend time in Banchory, leading to increased footfall

in the town centre and the use of local facilities and businesses.

Once community views have been obtained, the work is scheduled for spring and summer next year.
