Two projects of great importance to the development of Brechin are the by-pass roadway and the city centre scheme. The Chamber of Commerce and the City of Brechin Civic trust have invited acknowledged experts to come to Brechin to talk on these two subjects and it is hoped that all Brechin people interested in the future of their town will support the efforts being made.

The quality of radio equipment at Stracathro Hospital, near Brechin, is very poor, and there is little or no radio in some of the wards, it was reported at the annual meeting of Aberdeen Hospitals Relay Association. The association agreed to try to improve the position by finding out if there was a direct line from Aberdeen Royal infirmary to Stracathro.
