PEOPLE IN ELGIN are being reminded that they now have just one week to have their say on the future road strategy in the town.
Moray Council says that there has been an encouraging response to the survey following its launch in June – while drop-n sessions held at the St Giles Centre also attracted a deal of interest.
“It is vitally important that we hear the views of those people who travel to, in and around Elgin, particularly the problems and issues they face and what people think could be done to improve their journeys,” a spokesman said.
He added: “The response to the survey has been very good and we are extremely grateful to those who have already given us their views and comments.
“The survey remains open until the end of July and we would urge those who have not yet responded to do so to ensure their voices are heard.”
The need for a transport strategy was agreed by councillors following the scrapping of plans for an Elgin western link road earlier this year. Over 450 people have responded so far on a wide range of issues – and these, the spokesman said, will help to inform the strategy.
The survey can be accessed online and paper versions are also available at the Moray Council access point in Elgin, Elgin library and Moray Leisure Centre.
