Ban on sky lanterns

A ban on the in­ten­tional re­lease of bal­loons and sky lanterns on coun­cil-owned prop­erty, land and events li­censed by the lo­cal au­thor­ity, has been in­tro­duced by coun­cil­lors amid fears they are danger­ous and harm­ful to the en­vi­ron­ment. Online News read­ers gave their views.

Jen­nifer Ford posted: “Should have been banned way be­fore now.”

Brian Doig said: “It’s not about pun­ish­ment, it’s about ed­u­ca­tion.

“I was mes­merised by a Chi­nese lantern dis­play for a dear friend taken far far too early. I loved it. I had no idea of the con­se­quences.

“If a few more peo­ple catch on through this pub­lic­ity then that is good enough for me.”

Les­ley Ha­trick wrote: “What about putting a stop to fire­works – makes more sense.”

Park­ing per­mit plan

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil are propos­ing to in­tro­duce res­i­dents’ park­ing per­mit zones in streets near Hairmyres train sta­tion to deal with in­creased de­mand.

El­iz­a­beth Kennedy posted: “The is­sue that needs ad­dressed is the en­tirely in­ad­e­quate park­ing at Hairmyres.”

Sa­man­tha Stokes said: “No­body should be park­ing in the hos­pi­tal for the train sta­tion. It is beyond self­ish.”

Julie Cham­bers wrote: “This is not the an­swer. This is just go­ing to force more com­muters to park in Hairmyres Hos­pi­tal – caus­ing more dis­tress to pa­tients.”
