A raft of parking and traffic changes, including parking restrictions around a North-east harbour, are to be considered by councillors next week.
The proposals would make Banff’s Water Path one-way and reduce the speed limit of Melrose Crescent to 20mph in the neighbouring town of Macduff.
Crucially, the package of changes which will be presented to Banffshire councillors includes creating a “no-waiting” zone around Macduff harbour.
The aim of blocking vehicles from waiting around the Low Shore junctions with both Laing Street and Gellymill Street is to cut down on “inconsiderate parking” which can hamper traffic flow around the harbour area.
However, one local resident, who did not want to be named, has objected to the plan. They said: “A Macduff harbour masterplan being developed which, among other things, was looking at traffic flows, potential road closures and parking in the harbour area.”
The objector added that the proposed changes appeared to “contradict” the masterplan.
Members of the Banff and Buchan area committee will meet on Tuesday to discuss the proposals.
