Winter in Pitlochry … and unsightly overgrowth at High Mill

As the photos above show, it was a pretty snowy day in Pitlochry today, where I and a couple of colleagues from Dundee Liberal Democrats were again helping our Perth & Kinross Highland Ward colleagues, who are contesting a by-election later this month. Although the snow was on, it was actually a beautiful morning – and the first time I have canvassed a distillery! (see right)

On a totally different matter, I have received complaints from residents in the High Mill and Shepherd’s Loan area that the area to the north of High Mill has become overgrown again. Back in November 2006, following my raising this matter, the owner (a Belgium-based developer) arranged for a tidy-up (click on headline above to view the original story).

As the photo below shows, the area is again overgrown and untidy. I have therefore approached the City Council about the matter and am pleased to say that the Planning Enforcement Officer has agreed to write to the owner asking for a further tidy-up.
