  • Still open, via questionnaire, 15:50, Tue 1 September 2015

  • The problem still exists. Communications from Aberdeenshire Council merely confirm the ineffectiveness of the Council regarding complaints. I have reported this complaint on three separate occasions to Fix My Street, yet Council state this is the first time they have been notified. They also stated they were unaware who owned the property, which merely compounds their abilities. A local bye-law highlights the necessity to cut-back overgrown trees and hedges yet the problem is rife in Banchory. Begs the question what do Council Officials actually do?

  • Questionnaire filled in by problem reporter; State changed to: Fixed, 10:12, Wed 30 September 2015

  • As per the norm it took Aberdeenshire Council weeks to resolve the problem. This point alone is one of the reasons I contact Fix My Street, as Aberdeenshire Council would probably ignore my complaint.

    State changed to: Fixed
