The Drop In Event in Fraserburgh is one of 11 consultation events being held throughout Aberdeenshire during this consultation 

Local representatives are now urging local residents in Fraserburgh to have their say.

Commenting, Fraserburgh councillor Charles Buchan said: “

George Esslemont, secretary of Fraserburgh Community Council, commented: “It’s something that as many people as possible should get involved in.

“The townspeople need to get involved, the more people the better - it’s very important for the town.

“It’s vital that people come forward and stress any concerns they might have.

“We want to encourage businesses to come up here but they can’t because of a lack of industrial land - there’s very little of it in Fraserburgh,” 
he added.
