BBC, Community Council, local TV and Bus Timetables!

I was contacted by the BBC yesterday following the decision of the Planning & Transport Committee of the City Council on Monday evening to undertake a £150 000 study into protecting the city from flooding - you can read the report of this on the BBC website by clicking on the headline above.

Last night (despite the heavy rain!) there was a good attendance at West End Community Council for its monthly meeting and Annual General Meeting.

I have now received from Stagecoach Strathtay full bus timetables for the 69 route across the West End (replacement for the old 72) and the "new" 72 route (the reduced route only as far west as Windsor Street) and had these available at the community council meeting. I'm most grateful to the community council member who is ensuring these will be available at both Perth Road Post Office and Blackness Library. If you would like me to send you copies, please e-mail me at - many thanks!

Lastly, with the recent publication of the Scottish Broadcasting Commission Report, the Fife & Tayside Local TV group has updated its website with the latest news, including :

* Scottish Broadcasting Commission - recommends a Scottish network - potentially good for local TV

* 7th Mux - what is that? Why it means local TV for all instead of just 1 in 3

* Ofcom DDR consultation - Fife Tayside TV submission now submitted
