Councillors

David reported that the vegetation around East Dyke has been cut back to allow stone mason to repair the consumption dyke.

KCC asked David to check if Roughs Cairn and the dyke at Prime Four would be included in the repair works, and to determine who was responsible for the maintenance of these dykes.

David

David confirmed that the outcome of the recent Council meeting regarding the Kingswells buses was that the service would be extended early morning and up to 11pm Monday to Friday.

There would be no bus service around Kingswells at the weekend. This was disappointing, but was not a realistic expectation from this meeting.

A more permanent solutions is expected to be discussed at the September council meeting.
