Stonehaven Town Partnership – February 2015

Stonehaven Land Train will be recommencing operation in April.

We still require PSV drivers and conductor/storytellers for this season so if you are interested in working on the train please e mail

STP would like to purchase an additional carriage this year, which will cost £25,000 and we have started to look at funding for this and would be grateful for any help in achieving this target.

We will shortly be asking local businesses if they would like to sponsor it this year with the opportunity to advertise on the land train and we are running a competition for the local primary schools to “name the land train.”

Public consultation works! The two Planning for Real Reports are now available on which are the result of three Planning for Real public consultation events which took place in 2012.

One shows the work that has been done by a number of local groups and Aberdeenshire Council to close out some of the issues raised and the other has a list of actions that we require further information from residents to enable us to direct them to the correct group.

Take a look at these reports on the website, hard copies are available to read at the library, the Community Centre, Leisure Centre and Viewmount.

Stonehaven Harbour Development Feasibility Study Steering Group have appointed consultants who have had an initial visit to the area.

Comments from residents, interest groups and businesses at the Harbour have been requested and will be sent to the consultants for consideration. The final report will be issued at the end of April.
