Comment posted Helensburgh candidates putting the rules back by PBP.
Vivien Dance smiling benignly at the Princess Royal as both stood on the Victoria Hall steps, as seen on the front page of the Helensburgh Advertiser, when Mrs Dance had been explicitly banned from the property because of the election ‘purdah’ – how does that shape up with the rules?

- Proposed posts for proposed new council coalition administration
Heaven help us — Mars Mulvaney is back. Just typical he did not keep his fellow Tories in the loop.
Surely his first job, especially in the light of the utter chaos in the town centre because of the start of the CHORD project works, is to clear up the parking problems in John Street between West Clyde Street and West Princes Street.
Yes, outside the garage where he works.
- One real issue and some strange arguments against Cove Community Wind Farm
Tripe indeed. What makes you think Rosneath, the Gareloch, Cove and Kilcreggan are industrialised landscapes? They all fall into the scenic landscapes and seascapes that you and we all want to protect.
We fought off oil rig construction at Portkil. This would be even more obtrusive to far more people and areas, and all for economic benefits which generally are heavily weighted in favour of the commercial interests involved in construction and running of windfarms.
And of course a certain Mr Salmond likes wind farms.
- BID4OBAN to target empty shops
Helensburgh has the same problem, and already this month three more shops have announced closure — all blaming the Council’s business rates.
But to my mind the problem is parking. We will not the footfall until Council car parks are free, as in Dumbarton and, I believe, a certain Lochgilphead.
- PS Comet Bicentenary for Helensburgh and Port Glasgow
The link to the Comet website still does not work.
- Council suspends Helensburgh CHORD Colquhoun Square redesign
Great start for the new administration and James Robb in particular. The previous proposal for Colquhoun Square was horrendous and would have made the place look like a deserted runway for much of the time. It was also a recipe for traffic and transport chaos.
Good luck with the informal consultation. What is needed is a smartening up of what currently exists, most especially the awful and highly dangerous roads and pavements. Do keep the Comet lamps, but some of them need refurbished.
When you have finished all that, make daytime enforcement of the parking regulations in lower John Street a priority.
