Good riddance to burnt rubbish
The Scottish Government this week rejected an appeal by the developer wanting to build a giant incinerator at Shore Road in Perth, which will hopefully now be the end to that whole shameful story. All involved in Perth will be wanting to put this well won battle behind them now and move on to something a bit more constructive for the Fair City.
While local Nat politicians Pete Wishart MP and Roseanna Cunningham MSP could barely wait to get their names in the papers this week, it was the local Community Council with the support of Lib Dem councillor Peter Barrett and others including the Gannochy Trust who did all the hard work in acheiving a good outcome in all this, keeping party politics out of the issue and pulling together a strong consensus of opinion and a good working strategy that eventually won the day.
Lib Dem Cllrs Peter Barrett (Left) and Lewis Simpson (centre) above, make their point this week.
Well done guys for your contribution to a job well done.
The other gentleman is the author of this blog.
