2.4 Following well received engagement, the implementation of car parking changes in Stonehaven was delayed until December 2014 and an agreement was made that all parking will be free on the four Saturdays leading up to Christmas.

Next steps:

Work is continuing for all of these actions and further progress is requested regularly by the Community Planning Group.
