The Secretary reported that BT had removed the equipment from the phone box in Sunnyside and that ownership of the box had now been passed to the Community Trust. Mrs. Lada Wilson is currently preparing details for a project to convert the box into a small gallery.
It was also noted that there had been another serious accident at the lower crossroads 3 weeks ago. The new road surfacing and white lining had now been reinstated at the crossroads.
St. Andrews West-
Mr. & Mrs. Neilson of Kincaple had written outlining their concerns about the amount, and speed, of traffic using the single track Kincaple Loan between the A91 and the village. The road has no passing places and the verges are giving way with vehicle usage. This problem appears to have increased with the expansion of the Forest Lodges site. The elected Councillors agreed to take the matter up with the Roads Dept.
Mr Younger noted that the warning signs at the school crossing were not working.
Traffic and Transportation: Details of the proposed parking restrictions at the junction of Sunnyside and The Glebe were discussed. The Council supported the proposal, subject to the proposed yellow lines on the north side of Sunnyside being extended to join up with existing lines at the junction of Main Street.
Mrs. Maureen Scott had written a letter of thanks for the gift vouchers she had received for her work in auditing the Community Council Accounts.
The Chairman introduced Anya McGladdery and Taylor Laura Watt, senior pupils from Madras College, who are keen to participate in Community projects. The Chairman invited the girls to bring forward any ideas which would be of interest to the community at the next meeting.
Mrs. Lindsay, who lives in the Glebe raised the matter of dog fouling on the open area in front of her property and wondered if signage could be put up asking dog owners to keep their animals on a lead whilst passing through the Glebe. Councillor Thomson would contact the Dog Warden to assess the situation. Mrs. Lindsay was to approach Headon Developments regarding the matter.
Date of Next Meeting: Wednesday 11th October 2017 at 7.30pm in the Church Hall.
