Investigation ahead of improvement

FORRES Community Council (FCC) is investigating traffic concerns in the area.
Secretary Shaun Moat told his colleagues at last week's public meeting in the Tolbooth that he had set up an online survey after a member of the public raised a number of issues.
He said: "The purpose is to find out what areas of the town are concerns, and what members of the public feel is needed there.
"My concerns are around the Orchard Road junction with St Catherine's Road where the removal of a patrol crossing officer means there is a high risk of injury to schoolchildren trying to cross that busy section of road.
"I'm also concerned about the number of vehicles parking outside the takeaways and hearing and witnessing a number of near misses there."
The survey, https://www.opinionstage.com/forrescc/forres-traffic-survey, has had 163 responses so far.
Mr Moat added: "We encourage everyone to put their opinions and suggestions forward so that we can draw up an action plan with Police Scotland and Moray Council.
"We don't want to stop parking within the town centre but we want to look at what can be done to reduce the risk of accidents."
Let FCC what your thoughts are via the survey or email email to email@example.com.
