Com­mu­nity Coun­cil

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.
