SUCCESS WITH A9 OVERBRIDGE SIGNAGE
A new Merge in Turn sign has been placed on the B9006
The signage on the B9006 going over the A9 flyover towards the Inshes roundabout means that traffic is to 'Merge in Turn' from each lane. WCC has tried for months to get The Highland Council to put up a sign saying so in plain English as some drivers in the nearside lane think that the offside lane drivers are 'jumping the queue'. They are not. Click here for an explanation.

CITY OF INVERNESS
CRADLEHALL AND WESTHILL COMMUNITY COUNCIL
Welcome. This website is to help residents in Westhill and Cradlehall, Inverness, to interact with the Community Council, and vice versa.
We began this process in 2012 with our first Newsletter and, while this is on-going, we are improving our service with this interactive website. We have a Facebook page but no-one to administer it, so it simply links to this website at present.
Meetings are normally held monthly, except the summer months July and August. You are warmly invited to attend, ask questions and meet your community councillors and Highland Councillors face to face. If you have an issue to raise, you will get an opportunity at the beginning of the meeting to state what it is and if there is time it can come up under any other competent business, or as an agenda item at the next month's meeting. Better still, you may email the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org to put it on the next agenda.
We aim to have the Agenda for our next meeting, and Minutes for previous meetings on the side menu, but there are reasons when this does not happen.
The Community Council meetings give you an opportunity to meet your local Councillors, make your feelings known about local issues, and learn about the provision of local authority services such as planning, policing and so on.
It is about your community - about where you live - and the Community Council is stronger with your support.
If you want to know more about local issues and how decisions are made by your local authority, the Community Council is a good place to begin.
This new website was launched on 11 Sep 2013 and replaces the previous one.
The easier URL www.westhillcc.co.uk from our old website is still functional and will take you to this website.
