Grit bins will be replaced in North Esk Road

During the March meeting of the Inveresk Community Council an update of various matters arising in the Inveresk area was given.

Chairperson Duncan Smedley informed the meeting that after meeting with Councillor Bob Myles and Douglas Hill from the roads department at Angus Council it was confirmed that new grit bins will be put out to North Esk Road before next winter. This comes after residents asked for return or replacement of a grit bin to that area at last month’s community council meeting.

It was also confirmed that dangerous pot-holes up Glenesk look to have been repaired over the last few weeks.

Concerns over the health of the palm trees outside Inglis Memorial Hall had been raised at a previous meeting of the community council.

This led to a discussion with the head of the parks department at Angus Council who informed Duncan that they will look at the trees in the next few weeks and if they are still dead then they will lift them out and replace them.

Duncan informed the community council that he has been working on setting up a website for the community council.

However,there has been no further progress since the last meeting of the community council as he is waiting for the all clear from Angus Council before he can publish the website online.

Next on the agenda was a discussion about the quarry development in Edzell.

It was decided that the community council will wait until all surveys which were available at the open day were completed and a planning application had been submitted before deciding if it was appropriate to ask for a public meeting about the application.
