Aberdeenshire Council's Infrastructure Services Committee will discuss the area's strategic transport plan when they meet this week.
Amongst the points they are expected to discuss is a review of the progress made on various projects and activities being carried out by Nestrans as well as other external agencies and stakeholders, as well as learning about the progress in the implementation and delivery of the Aberdeenshire Local Transport Strategy.
Members will also be asked to consider Aberdeenshire's response to consultation documentation on Scotland's Road Safety Framework To 2030, which is a multi-agency strategy aiming to reduce the number of casualties on Scotland's roads.
The discussions around progress and continued development will look at, amongst other points, the increased usage of electric vehicles in the county, and the adjustments required by the Council to accomodate for this including possibly altering the electricity usage fee at charging points.
This will coincide with the reinstatement of parking charges in Council-operated off-street car parks in January 2021.
