Fraserburgh and District Councillor Brian Topping has this week spoken of his delight that road improvements have been completed on the town’s Denmark Street following discussions with Langstane Housing Association.

Councillor Topping, who was re-elected in May, told the Fraserburgh Herald that he had been in discussions with Langstane Housing Association for some time, looking to have bollards and safety improvements to the road installed.

He said that, now that the works were complete, Aberdeenshire Council could now ‘adopt’ it.

The Fraserburgh Herald contacted Aberdeenshire Council who confirmed that the local authority now owns Denmark Street.

Denmark Street most recently had a major housing development scheme completed in 2010, which was approved in 2008 subject to conditions, with 51 houses being built by Langstane Housing Association with funding from the Scottish Government and Aberdeenshire Council.

Councillor Topping was speaking ahead of last Tuesday’s (19 June) Safety Group and Community Council meetings.
