Community councillor reacts to Chambers idea

Community councillor John Lovegrove has this week reacted to suggestions that Fraserburgh’s Council Chambers should be bulldozed.

The building, where Fraserburgh’s community council continues to meet, is scheduled to be discussed at the next meeting of the Banff and Buchan Area Committee next week.

Commenting, Mr Lovegrove said: “I think that the town’s in a bad enough state as it is, with a lack of development, without hauling down the Chambers.

“If it were up to me, it wouldn’t been done,” he added, mentioning that the Council Chambers has recently seen a stairlift installed to help the elderly and disabled attend meetings at Saltoun Square.
