Car­port win to Vi­dler

POST Newspapers - - Letters -

Dalkeith res­i­dent Ken Vi­dler has suc­ceeded in his ap­pli­ca­tion to build a car­port at his Circe Cir­cle home.

Mr V idler, who has seven chil­dren and up to five cars a this home at a time, said: “It’s re­ally to pro­tect the cars from the sun, hail and rain .”

How­ever, not all Ned­lands coun­cil­lors were con­vinced of the ne­ces­sity for the car­port.

“You’ve shot down ap­pli­ca­tions for the same,” An­drew Mangano told his fel­low coun­cil­lors, suggest­ing that ap­prov­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion would ex­pose the coun­cil to ac­cu­sa­tions of in­con­sis­tency.

He didn’t per­suade coun­cil­lor Bill Has­sell, who said: “What we’re talk­ing about here is a roof over a paved area for a fam­ily that needs it.”
