Blocked drains in Tarbert
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.
