New Year event decision deferred
Councillors yesterday decided to defer a decision on a Hogmanay event for Stonehaven’s Market Square.
Stephen Jackson who runs Prestige Entertainment had requested the use of the Market Square for an event to bring in Hogmanay 2019, but members of the Kincardine and Mearns area committee have asked for more information before considering the application.
“Committee have asked for more information”
Councillor Sarah Dickinson asked for a deferral in order to gain “more clarification” on the type of event that would be taking place and if it would be a not-forprofit organisation involved.
No applications have yet been submitted for an event in the central plaza of the town for Hogmanay 2018.
The town’s annual Fireballs Festival is still expected to go ahead as usual.
