Fund­ing for path on hold

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

OF­FI­CIALS have been crit­i­cised for go­ing down the wrong path in rec­om­mend­ing £24,500 be spent on a new pave­ment in the grounds of Carnoustie House.

Mem­bers of Angus Coun­cil’s com­mu­ni­ties com­mit­tee were asked to agree a re­port which rec­om­mended seven projects to­talling £159,000 in 201819 – but the al­lo­ca­tion of £24,500 for the con­struc­tion of a path in Carnoustie House grounds, link­ing from Yea­man Street, was put on hold.

David Cheape, an In­de­pen­dent coun­cil­lor for Carnoustie and Dis­trict, said: “I am not aware of a need or a de­mand for this path in Carnoustie – we are be­ing asked to al­lo­cate al­most £25,000 with­out any con­sul­ta­tion.”

He added: “What would be pop­u­lar would be the use of these funds to re­in­state the path at the side of Pan­bride Church, known as the Fairy Steps.”

The meet­ing was told sug­ges­tions are gath­ered from a num­ber of sources, in­clud­ing com­mu­nity coun­cils and coun­cil­lors.
