Councillor Dougie Philand was at the Scottish Parliament’s Pubic Petitions Committee yesterday where, amongst a series of petitions,the Argyll First group’s petition on the A83 – PE1428- was in another hearing.
The minutes of the meeting have now been published here online, as a downloadable pdf file.
Since these are the minutes relating to each of the petitions heard, below is an extract of the item relating to the A83 petition.
‘PE1428 by Councillor Douglas Philand, on behalf of Argyll First, on improvements for the A83. The Committee agreed to write to the Scottish Government and Transport Scotland.’
This means that the committee is putting positions to the Scottish Government and to Transport Scotland on which it is requiring their responses.
As before, Argyll First will have the chance to respond to the submissions the petitions committee receives from the the Scottish Government and from Transport Scotland.
These will be sent to Argyll First as they are received – and the committee will be writing to both shortly.
We understand that the Official Report (pretty well a verbatim transcript) of the meeting will be published online here on Monday 10th September; and the archived video of the meeting will shortly be published online here if you missed it live online.
