The bus service changes approved by Tayside transport committee last week will have the effect of improving the town service in Montrose but withdrawing that in Brechin.

Peter FRASER QC, MP has once again taken up the case for Development Area Status for Brechin following on the observations made by Tayside Regional Council in response to the Government White Paper on Regional Industrial Development. In their observations the Regional Council have concluded that there is a case for designating Brechin as a Development Area following on their estimate of the unemployment rate and the number of manufacturing jobs which have been lost.
