Plan for Balrothery east urged
A local councillor has pushed for the early development of a Balrothery East Masterplan to address a problem for a local school that is without playing facilities.
Cllr David O’connor (NP) asked for the plan to be prioritised and was told by the council that although the plan is not currently scheduled to be among 13 masterplans the council is preparing over the next three years, it would commit to ‘review prioritising the preparation of the Balrothery East Masterplan in the context of addressing the educational requirements for the Balrothery area’.
Cllr O’connor said the plan was important to provide sports grounds for the school and also to provide a new walkway from Balrothery to Ardgillan Castle.
He said the current road between the two locations is ‘not dead safe’ for pedestrians and he hoped that this land could be a ‘linkin the chain to bring us to Ardgillan’.
