Craighouse development

I've had quite a few constituents asking about my personal position on the proposed development at Craighouse - its a lively topic of discussion on the doors/phones!

The Friends of Craighouse Grounds and Wood have a website that did put up a joint-statement from myself and colleague Paul Godzik (the proposed development potentially affects both Wards 9 and 10 - if not the whole city!) and you can see that here ...

... and a further, very recent, post (see here) has repeated those points and also summarised the statements from across the political spectrum.

I've tried to be as supportive and helpful to the campaign as possible, and hope whoever is ultimately going to make the final decision on any application (who knows what individuals will be on the Planning Committee after Thursday!) will take note of the breadth of concern being expressed about aspects of the current plans.
