Blocked drains in Tar­bert

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, I was de­lighted to at­tend the lat­est East Kin­tyre Com­mu­nity Coun­cil meet­ing and hear about nu­mer­ous is­sues from lo­cal mem­bers, in­clud­ing the wa­ter prob­lem at the har­bour’s man-hole cover, Brack­ley Ceme­tery con­cerns, the need for new speed limit signs for Shore Road and the Brae and the need for larger bins at the har­bour. I also spoke di­rectly to my con­stituents, in­clud­ing many busi­ness own­ers in Tar­bert.

The prob­lems with blocked drains con­tin­ues in East Kin­tyre, with many in­di­vid­ual drains still need­ing fixed even though my­self and oth­ers have raised this mat­ter with our roads depart­ment many times be­fore. Some of these drains are now badly over­grown with veg­e­ta­tion.

I will press this mat­ter yet again to make sure the drains across my coun­cil ward are not left in dis­re­pair..

Coun­cil­lor Alastair Red­man, Isle of Is­lay.
