CRIEFF PUBLIC MEETING WELL ATTENDED AND INFORMATIVE

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has hosted a public meeting in Crieff to enable local residents and businesses to share their concerns about the implications of proposed gas works in Crieff.

 

Commenting after the meeting, Ms Cunningham said:

“This was a really useful meeting with a fantastic turnout.  Extra chairs had to be put out and, in the end, it was standing room only in the Community Campus Lecture Theatre.  I want to thank everyone who came along.

“I am very grateful to David McCann and other members of the Crieff Succeeds BID for their really informative input and I am very pleased, too, that representatives from Scottish Gas Network were able to join us and answer some of the questions that were raised.

“The representatives from SGN will certainly have gone away from the meeting with little doubt that this is an issue over which there are very strong feelings indeed.  In particular, there was unanimity in the room that everything possible must be done to avoid closing the bridge and that there should be no question of the works being carried out during the peak tourism season.

“At this stage, there really were more questions than answers but over the next few days and weeks, a range of technical investigative works are to be carried out which should make the options much clearer.

“I will be looking for SGN to give as much concrete information as they possibly can, as soon as they can, and I am pleased that we have a commitment from them that they will come back to the people of Crieff in about eight weeks’ time when – by their own timetable – they should be in a better position to give the answers that people are looking for."
