Aberlady residents have been invited to complete a community survey form on potential improvements to make our village a healthier, safer and more pleasant place to live, work and play. It includes questions on traffic, pedestrian safety, transport, community gardens, the Sea Green and renewable energy.

The results will help guide and influence future decision-making. They will be submitted to East Lothian Council and to the local community council.  The North Berwick Community Area Partnership has said it expects the results to determine its local priorities moving forward.

The survey follows a village event held in May 2017 to generate ideas which, with majority support within the community, might be taken forward. This survey is the next step in that consultation process organised by the Climate Friendly Aberlady Planning Group (CFAPG) with support from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. The CFAPG includes members from the Church, the Conservation and History Society, the Parent Council and the Community Association.

If you live within or within the immediate vicinity your household is invited to submit a response to the survey via www.surveymonkey.com/r/climatefriendlyaberlady or in a collection box provided in the Post Office by Friday, 9 February 2018.  Responses will remain anonymous. Thank you for your support!
