The Community Action Plan survey of Westhill and Elrick

Westhill and Elrick Community Council are in the process of developing a Community Action Plan for Westhill and Elrick which will give the community the opportunity  to identify the issues that are important to them and how significant changes can be made. Having completed the survey if you would like to become part of a steering group or have any queries about the survey please contact myself at

The online survey can be found at this link:

For those that would prefer a paper version of the survey they are available from the library and the estate agents Storie, Cruden and Simpson at the Westhill shopping centre.

 Carnie Woods Path Restoration – User Survey 

Many parts of Carnie Woods and its trails were devastated by last winter’s storms. Although most of the fallen trees have since been cleared, many of the trails are still in poor condition.

In a first phase of restoration, Westhill & Elrick Community Council, together with the landowner Aberdeen City Council, is planning to restore the right of way through Carnie Woods to an all-abilities standard surface of compacted hardcore material suitable for walkers, joggers, cyclists and wheelers [that is pushchair and wheelchair/mobility scooter users].

Together, we would like to get a better understanding of how the community currently uses the path network in Carnie Woods and the likely impact such an investment would make.

Please take the survey per link below. It should take no more than 5 minutes. Please also encourage others to respond. The survey will close on Friday, 4th November 2022. Thank you
