KCC CHAIR REPORT FOR AGM 2024
This has been another busy year for KCC. Apart from the usual ‘bread and butter’ issues of considering planning applications, liaising with the Police and hearing the views of members of the public at our meetings, we have been involved in many other things.


The floods and power cuts for previous years are now unhappy memories, but KCC has been looking to the future to ensure that we are prepared. To this end, we have purchased and installed a generator at the village hall which means that it will be a warm and welcoming place of refuge should we experience severe weather or power cuts. Thanks go to Fran Patrick and others for organising this.
Anti-social parking remains an issue, particularly around the shops and schools. The Police are aware and have been educating drivers.


Roland Playle from the Just Transitions Community Project gave a talk on the importance and benefits of place-based community planning. Kemnay is one of the four communities chosen for the roll out of the project. This is a chance for the people of Kemnay to shape the Kemnay of the future. Look out for Just transitions events in the coming year. Your input will be vital.
Rob Mackay gave a talk on the status of the community minibus. The bus is now beyond economic repair and will not be replaced by Aberdeenshire Council.


Hilda Hart gave a talk on the coming installation of balance posts. Kemnay will be the first place in the northeast to have them.


Jim Morgan gave a talk on progress made towards building a new Scout hut for the village.
Police Scotland have announced that they will not investigate crimes where there is no evidence or prospect of identifying the suspect. This is a major departure, but it must be stressed that ALL crimes should be reported- even if there is no chance of obtaining a conviction, it allows the Police to identify trends in the area. If you see something that you think the Police should know about, please report it.
Likewise, please report things like potholes, defective streetlights and other faults to Aberdeenshire Council via their website.


KCC now has a computer thanks to a grant from Aberdeenshire Council, and we hope that this will cure the I.T. issues that plagued our attempts to conduct meetings by Zoom.


KCC was pleased to be able to help Kemnay Primary School by advising them of funding available for improvement of the back park. The local football teams and a cricket club also benefited from this funding.


Kemnay is a vibrant community, blessed by many volunteers who use their time and talents to organise and run things that benefit the village and surrounding area. One glance at the Newsletter- which is produced and delivered by volunteers- has details of some of the many of the groups that are active in the area. Do you have some time and energy to spare to make a difference?
The year ahead will produce a real challenge as Aberdeenshire Council are looking to do a Community Asset Transfer of the village hall. This is a vital resource for Kemnay, and the Committee are looking for members to run the hall.


Thanks are due to generous sponsors who donate towards the Christmas lights and to those who contributed to the defibrillator fund.


I would like to thank our elected Councillors for their support to KCC and the Community. KCC is strictly apolitical, but special mention must be made of Councillor Hazel Smith, who has fought for years for reinstatement of the riverside path. Also, huge thanks to all KCC members for going above and beyond on behalf of their community. Last, but certainly not least, thanks go to Fran Patrick, our unflappable secretary.


Gaenor Berkin
