Councillor Paul Johnston has welcomed the paths initiative by Udny Community Trust and Udny Community Council. At a community meeting in Udny Green Hall people were able to discuss local paths and prioritise those paths people would like to develop.
“There was a great deal of consensus from people about what is the priority locally and what people value. Also a sense of commitment from those present to help and get to work on paths.” said Paul.
“It was great to have a good turnout and plenty of ideas and it was good see all sections of the community present including local Udny Estate owners, Bill and Margaret Williams as well the National Trust for Scotland.”
“The Paths network around Udny is important for residents and visitors alike. The links between historic Udny Green and Pitmedden along with Pitmedden Gardens is highly valued. But I was impressed that the community want to open the drove road which links Pitmedden to the Formartine and Buchan line, where walkers and cyclists can go long distances in tranquillity and safety”
The event was organised by Paths for all and Udny Community Trust’s development officer Eleanor Morris. Local Landowners
