THE BURGH Surveyor is to take in tenders for the provision of 15 garages at Dall’s Lane.

These are to be erected at the side of the cricket park.

Ground is to be given over by the Cricket Club and the Council last Monday agreed to set back the cricket park fence over its whole length at the cost of £110.

The cost of laying a forecourt to the range of garages is £340.

After discussion the Council agreed simply to extend the garden fences at Guthrie Park as far as the cricket park fence in its new position at a cost of £15.

The total cost will be £465 or £31 per garage.

Angus Hospitals Board has accepted a recommendation that the headquarters of Angus College of Nursing should remain at Stracathro Hospital.

The proposal was that the School should be transferred to Sunnyside Royal Hospital where more accommodation would have been available for students and staff.

This additional accommodation, however, is to be provided at Stracathro.

THE ROADS Committee recommended that tenders be invited for the re-alignment of Park Road and the demolition of the railway bridge.

There would be further consultation by the Burgh Surveyor with the County Road Surveyor with regard to an extension of Wards Road to Drumachlie Loan.

TAyside Regional Council has placed a £149,727 contract with Tractor Shovels (Contracts), Ltd., Inverkeithing, for the road improvements at Fernybank and Mudloch in Glenesk.

At Mudloch, near Tarfside, the road banking has become unstable resulting in a steady break-up of the road surface.

Infilling is required there while just down the glen, at Fernybank, road widening is planned.

The two problems are being tackled as one contract with material from the raod widening being used as infill.
