Community surveys

From time to time we will be running online and paper surveys about issues affecting our community.  

Here you can find all our current surveys and updates on how we have used your responses.

Public transport survey

In May 2019 we ran a survey about public transport in the Belhelvie area (Belhelvie, Balmedie, Potterton, Blackdog and Whitecairns).

We wanted to find out how you rate the current transport service, what you want from the services, any complaints you have filed with Stagecoach and how you would use a community bus service if it was available. 

We ran this survey in response to community feedback about the recent changes to our bus services and the meeting at Eigie House in March.

We wanted to collect your opinions and experience of using the services so we have evidence from the community to support us in our talks with Stagecoach and Aberdeenshire Council about the state of transport in our area. 

Our next steps now we have your responses

A huge thank you to everyone who responded.  We presented your feedback at the Area Bus Forum run by Aberdeenshire Council and attended by Stagecoach on Thursday 6 June 2019.  Sixteen residents from Balmedie, Blackdog and Potterton attended the meeting.  

We also talked to Stagecoach about your feedback at their public consultation event on 25 June about their proposed new timetables (due to go into operation on 19 August). More information is available on the Stagecoach website. 

We continue to use your feedback in more talks with Stagecoach and Aberdeenshire Council, especially the 54 route that used to stop on King Street at Morrisons, and how to improve access to the buses in Blackdog.


If you have any questions please let us know.
