Last night, along with Perth Road businesses and a City Council officer, I was pleased to participate in a very positive discussion that took place at the Tartan Coffee House on Perth Road, around the idea of forming a Perth Road Traders' Association.
I was very grateful to a representative from Broughty Ferry Traders' Association (BFTA) who I had asked to attend to explain how BFTA operates and has worked for the benefit of Broughty Ferry businesses and the wider community in the Ferry. He gave a really interesting explanation of the work of BFTA that was really appreciated by all who attended.
There's real enthusiasm to move forward a possible Perth Road Traders' Association by all the local businesses who attended and I'll do all I can to assist.
We have a superb local shopping area in the Perth Road and surrounding streets and there's much we can do in terms of infrastructure and environmental improvements, promotion of the district shopping centre - and so much more - to send the message that the West End is a great place in which to shop!
