Had another hectic week with group meeting on Monday, Civic Licensing on Tuesday, Special Meeting on Wednesday to adopt the local plan and Thursday I was doing Licensing Board Training followed by Neighbourhood Services.
We are desperate for a second supermarket in Arbroath, but are not allowed to change the local plan. It has been in front of three Scottish Exec reporters, but we still aren't allowed to change the local plan.
Whoever would have thought that a local authority would essentially be prohibited from allowing someone to open a shop? Its a total joke.
Meantime New Girlfriend is coming up to Arbroath and we are going to a local festival on Saturday and then up to Stonehaven for dinner with my boss and his wife. Hopefully I'll get some time in Edinburgh next week too.
