Comment posted RIP Helensburgh town centre: Waitrose out of town location approved by newsroom.
Those who wished for and worked for the decision taken today are now obligated to work to demonstrate that this will indeed rejuvenate the town centre.
You will be judged on the success you are confident you can achieve.
And, in the interests of Helensburgh, we wish you well, without equivocation, in proving our prognosis wrong.

- And we are happy to testify to how good those delis are.
- There remains the issue of their professional planning officers’ recommendations.
Who would put planning decisions in the hands of the first fleet of woodentops rushing to approve it today?
That’s exactly what has been done.

Obviously cross-eyed in adding this one up. Apologies. Will recalibrate this later.
On the second point, this is a rule-of-thumb indicator; and some people who give first prefs do so out of temporary disaffection with another party and are not actually core vote for the party on question. So the most reliable rule-of-thumb is to take votes at face value – including those for newly disaffected independents.
- Decoding Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square: Comet I or Comet II?
Had you made your suggestion on the lighting design for the square to Councillor Petrie who might then have taken if forwards at council level and become singularly associated with it through that process?
We should make it clear that it is popular received perception that associates Councillor Petrie with the ‘Comet’ lights, rather than any claim made by the man himself.
It would be very interesting to know of your complete plans for the lighting of the Square and the thinking behind what you had intended.

Evidently all ‘single use’ bags carry the levy, regardless of the material form which they are made – paper, plastic or recyclables.
But hygiene related bags – as for bread and cakes, for dirty products [eg with soil attached] and for medicines, are levy free.
We’ve not seen anything yet on take away food packaging, like polystyrene fish and chip or pizza boxes.
