No funds to fix school path

There is no council money available to repair the path from the Douglas Ewart High School to Ewart Drive, chairman John McNaught told members of CVCC.

He said the path, which goes past Windsor Lodge, would require £173,000 spent on it. Fellow community councillor Diann Hughes said the path was just “mud”. She added: “Gravel is useless as pushchairs and bikes get stuck in it.” Mid Galloway Councillor Alistair Geddes advised pressing the council on the matter by asking for a site meeting.

n Concerns about the amount of traffic using the Moss of Cree road were raised by CVCC member Tom Greenaway. Complaints about traffic speeding along the C-class road were raised at the March meeting by residents Michael and Shona Todd.

Mr Greenaway said he got the impression that council officers who came to look at the road were “not that interested”.
