A REPORT on an application to the District Council for a small private residential development of six to eight houses at the junction of Lethnot Road and High Street, Edzell was considered at a meeting of the Regional Housing Committee.
The report said the drainage facilities for further housing in the area were unfavourable, and the District Council is to be told the Region would wish the application and any other which required a drainage connection in Edzell be refused until the removal of the drainage difficulty.
If the District Council does not agree with this view the Region will want the application referred back to them for further consideration.
