Comment posted Argyll and Bute Planning Applications for week ending 22nd June 2012 by Willie Hutchison.

Of course an increase in planning fees will add to the choke off in construction. Indeed, at a time when people cannot move house, or indeed get on the property ladder because the banks will not lend, the logic of reducing the 20% VAT on home extensions could prove invaluable in getting construction folks back in a job. But of course such pump priming to get people back in work,is not a priority for our Westminster masters, or our local Argyll and Bute planning boys for that matter.

  • On a different topic one wonders if there could be a sinister issue with regard to the recent collapse of the RBS and the National Westminster’s banking systems. In fact, whilst the bank may anodynely refer to the 3 day collapse as ” a glitch ” one wonders if in fact the glitch is a deliberate fire to ease records or delay payments. Indeed, when in comes to criminality one only has to look at the Leveson Enquiry where news International have have lost crucial e.mails held on overseas servers, whilst previously undisclosed executive director i.phones have now been lost. Yes, it is not unreasonable to suspect the worst in rotten and corrupt corporate GB.

    Its for the people of Scotland to decide.

    Done may want the ornament of a titular head whilst others may consider it an anathema to democracy.

    Hereditary heads of state are about add good add hereditary physicians someone once said.

    Recognising that rural postal deliveries are something that a privatised Royal Mail would ditch given half a chance you could in fact say the same about rural, electricity supply, and telecommunications services.

    Don’t know how anyone could see these services hived off unless they want to depopulate the Highlands.

    No doubt Richard sees himself as a modern day Patrick Sillar.

  • So much for JOMO as businesses demand Scottish Government enables mobile phone mast upgrades
    I think the word serving the central belt would be better out as Glasgow serving the west with Edinburgh serving the east.

    No doibt there are those who think that either Glasgow or Edinburgh should be closed. Well that is the inference I take from one post here.

    Prestwick is useful in a number of ways. One it provides an additional facility where folks can utilise litre cost carriers. Two it is relatively fog and sure free, and h I’d available when other airports are closed. Three, it supports high tech aircraft engineering businesses. Four it provides local jobs and is used as an airport for people living in Ayrshire and further south.

    It can also be reached by train. Something that neither Glasgow or Edinburgh offer.

    Contrast that with the London airports who do have train access and well done BAA.

    I don’t think therefore that it will quietly be dropped
