Perth & Kinross Local Area Commander’s Bulletin - 4th October 2017

The Enchanted Forest – Faskally Wood, Pitlochry - The Enchanted Forest is now set up, and it opened to the public on Thursday 28th September in Faskally Woods, Pitlochry. As a result, there will be around 2500 visitors to the site each evening between 5.30pm and 11pm for the duration of the event. Coaches will continuously convey guests between Fishers Hotel and the site at Faskally - this is likely to greatly increase the volume of traffic within Atholl Street over the period of the event.

Perth & Kinross Local Area Commander’s Bulletin - 27th September 2017

CYCLING - In recent weeks I have received complaints regarding cyclists using the footways or footpaths in Perth city centre and also on Burghmuir Road and Jeanfield Road. With the recent media publicity involving the cyclist in London being found guilty of causing the death of a pedestrian by ‘wanton and furious driving’ I feel it necessary to highlight the risks that some cyclists are posing to pedestrians in Perth.
