Moray Council transportation team is holding a public consultation event about proposals to improve road and pedestrian safety in Lossiemouth on Thursday 18 April.

The drop-in event at Lossiemouth Town Hall runs from 2.30pm until 8pm and invites locals to discuss potential measures to tackle parking and crossings.

The event comes after requests from locals and elected members following the opening of the East Beach bridge for officers to review where parking should be allowed.

The three main proposed changes are: alterations to waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) at various locations around the town, particularly to manage congestion around Clifton Road and Seatown Road with a possibility of disabled parking here; a toucan crossing installation on Coulardbank Road (near the High School) as well as cycle track options there; and improvements to the pedestrian crossings on Queen Street, near the Co-op.

Moray Council’s Elected Members for Heldon and Laich are encouraging locals to pop into the session.

Cllr John Cowe said:

“Elected members are often contacted by concerned constituents raising traffic issues, this is an ideal opportunity for all residents to have their say on the proposals.

“Please take the chance to go along and speak with the transportation team and find out more.”

Cllr Bridget Mustard added:

“As Lossiemouth gets busier this is a timely consultation to allow residents to have their say on improving safety within the town.

“I hope as many people as possible can drop in to the event to get the specific details and make their views known.”

Cllr Neil Cameron also said:

“The best way to ensure the safety of road users and pedestrians is for the whole town to get behind any improvement measures that can be added.

“That’s why it’s important for folk to get along to the Town Hall on 18 April and contribute to these proposals.”

Cllr James Allan finished:

“These proposals are a way to keep locals and visitors safer on our streets and I’d ask anyone with a view on this to head to the consultation session and find out more.

“By working with the council officers we can make sure the needs and voices of the town are heard and taken into account.”
