Hillside, Dun and Logie Pert met at Craigo, with Mrs Kitty Ritchie presiding, and thanks were extended to Montrose Emergency Services.

Their members had removed 46 tyres fly-tipped near Lower North Water Bridge.

Constable Tracy Brown urged the public to be vigilant in case more tyres are dumped. If a crime is taking place, dial 999 and try to note registrations.

Angus councillor Bill Duff reported that remedial work is to be undertaken at Main Road, Hillside, where the speed bump is damaged.

Regarding flooding at the same area, Councillor Duff said the Parks Department is to investigate in the park. This will be carried forward to the next meeting.

There was nothing more to report about the Sainsbury’s store in Montrose, and this will be removed from the agenda for the time being.

Edward Russell reported that he believes flooding problems at Craigo Estate have been resolved. This will also be taken off the agenda, unless further problems arise.

He added that he had inspected Rosemount Road and would fill in pot holes before the next meeting.

Members noted that yellow markings have appeared on Kinnaber Road and that remedial work is to be undertaken. Councillor Duff said that the entrance to the Malting is to be resurfaced this year.

The long-running saga of caravans on a site in Kinnaber Road continues, with an enforcement notice having been served. The owners had until Monday to appeal to the Scottish Office. It was noted that there are now five caravans on the site.

Mark Johnstone informed members that a community rural appraisal has taken place in Logie Pert and it may be that Hillside will come up at some point. He said a meeting will take place on June 1 to highlight the findings and for further discussion.

Funds stood at £1,561.53, with one more insurance premium to be paid. The accounts will be audited for the June meeting, which will be on June 12 at 7.30pm at Dun Hall.
