Jackton and Thorntonhall
Scottish Power have reported problems in sourcing required materials needed for the wall to mount the defibrillator.
On November 29 Linda Fabiani MSP attended a further meeting with ScotRail Alliance (ScotRail and Network Rail) including with the chief executive of ScotRail, Alex Hynes to secure a more frequent rail service at Thorntonhall. Mr Hynes has confirmed that consideration is now being given for increased service due to the number of houses being constructed in the village.
There was no update on the ‘Local Development Plan’ received.
Any Other Business: Mr Gibson noted fly-tipping at the end of the lane at the tennis club including bottles, cans and other rubbish.
A number of young people were seen gathering and drinking at this location.
He also noted that the lane was still thick with leaves and asked if these and the rubbish could be cleared by the council.
A gate has been constructed by John Henderson at the intersection of the old Waterfoot Road and Peel Road by the railway bridge.
The community council hope this will prevent further fly tipping at this location.
Some previously dumped debris has also been removed.
The next meeting will be held on Wednesday January 16 at Thorntonhall Tennis Club.
It will start at 7.30pm. For more information contact Alistair Stewart – by e-mail at agstew[email protected]house.org.uk or phone 0776 276 6240. More information can be found on www.jackthorn.org.
