Last night was the first meeting of the Freelands Road Development Sub Group, set up to oversee the implementation of a new housing / care home / canal basin development in Ratho following a lengthy and contentious planning process.
Planning permission has now been granted and all are agreed that we must try to get maximum benefit from the development for the village while minimising any disruption caused by building work to adjacent residents and community.
Pleased to report that it was a positive and constructive meeting, so much so that I agreed to take the minutes at the next meeting in October !
As if I don't already have enough to do ......
Oh well, if the group continues in the same spirit it should be well worth it.
