Aberdeenshire Council’s Banff and Buchan Area Committee agreed on Tuesday on a number of items of work to be done in the area.

Councillor Charles Buchan expressed his approval and told the Fraserburgh Herald: “I was delighted that Banff and Buchan Area Committee today approved a large amount of expenditure on Fraserburgh and the villages around.

“Some highlights are that we got £40,000 for a new wall for the Cairnbulg Cemetery extension, and £20,000 for a much needed resurface of the Cairnbulg Cemetery car park.

“We also got £20,000 for food defences at Lackie Head near Fraserburgh Harbour.

“£368,000 is to be spent on our roads and street lighting, with improvements to Gallowhill Road, Hamilton Road, Arisaig Road, Noble St, Main Street,Boothby Road, Shore Street, and Commerce Street in Fraserburgh, and William Street, Church Street, West Haven Terrace, Station Road, in Cairnbulg, and Allochy Road, Summerfield terrace, Place and Walk, and Corn Road in Inverallochy.

There are also road improvements at Memsie and Spillarford. Shore Street and Provost Noble Avenue are getting new LED street lighting, costing £78,000.

“We have also got £800,000 of works for Fraserburgh and the villages in our reserve list of work that can be done if there is unspent money available.

“It is good that, even in a time of austerity, we are still getting our share.”
