Current & New Business

Assigned
to Init

 

1.     David Riach Memoria:. JS has to get the bench to Dougie Reid for the work to commence with the replacement of the bench slats as agreed by Marion Welsh. – Ongoing

2.     Concreate SV Post: KF agreed to enlist the assistance of the enforcement officer for the reinstatement of the SV sign by Hamilton House, which to date Scottish Water has ignored despite this being their responsibility.- Ongoing.

3.     Redundant Street Lights: The alleged redundant street lights (according to Ralph Singleton) remain an issue as it is clear that LCC did voice an objection to their removal back in 2009 contrary to the story given by RS. GB has been following this up with Ralph Singleton although he apparently now tells us that the removal of these two lights contributes to the reducing the Aberdeenshire Council carbon footprint although it is difficult to see how that is balanced against the installation of some 30 new lamp posts between Sundayswells and Torphins.We need to see some definitive action on this.Similarly, an issue has been raised at the same time with regards to the speed limits at each end of the village, which go from 60 mph to 30 mph.Road safety is clearly not something that the local authority seems concerned about. – Ongoing

4.     Dead Trees at Sewage Works: Again it seems that a death or serious injury is required before any action is taken. – Ongoing

5.      Trees at the Den: The issue of trees at Satans Den bends affecting the ice formation on the road surface was raised again with regard to the ownership of the trees. Further investigations into this are ongoing.

 

 

6.      Christmas Lights: GB stated that Matched Funding was available for the installation of the lights. Designs were chosen and funding allocated by LCC.

7.       Lumphanan Hall Takeover Plan: - A hall committee has now been formed and a list of work required to bring the buildings up to standard has been requested.
