Notes from a Councillor
Season’s greetings one and all.
I have no idea where that year went? It only seems like five minutes ago that I was looking forward representing the Strathtay ward and here I am giving you an update on some of the things that have already happened.
No doubt you will be pleased to see that the footpath on the Blairgowrie road (A923) is now complete and makes life a little safer heading up the hill. It is also good to see the long overdue road surfacing work near to the Golf club has also been done. This year will also see the start of the A9 dualling work from Luncarty to Birnam and a planning application is imminent for the sand and gravel borrow pit near Loak farm.
I recently attended the remembrance service at Dunkeld Cathedral and the Wreath laying ceremony at the War memorial. It was very sad to see only a handful of attendees. A number of residents commented that maybe it would be beneficial to have the memorial moved to a more accessible location. I would be interested to hear your thoughts.
As always, I am happy to take your phone calls or receive your emails for matters that you wish to discuss and I am always willing and happy to come out for a meeting.
It just leaves me to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
