Further to our news item on 2 November 2018, we have now heard that a procedural hearing has been fixed for 21 January 2019.
Latest news stories from ScotWays.
The ScotWays small grants scheme aims to help organisations fund a project up to 50% of the total budget for the project.
The scheme will award grants of between £500 and £1,500. It is hoped that this might enable organisations to achieve the completion of a community-based/access-related project which might not otherwise be able to proceed.
Applicant organisations should be members of ScotWays.
The next submission date for applications is 31st December 2018, and a decision on any applications received by that date will be made by the end of February 2019.
We reported on 10 September that the Sherrif Court had ruled in favour of the access dispute at Cairnbank Road, Penicuik, but that there was a chance that the owners may appeal that decision.
We have just heard that on 22 October the landowners did lodge an appeal with the Sheriff Appeal Court against the Sheriff’s judgement of 6 September and that Midlothian Council intends to defend it. Until the appeal process has been finalised, the Council is unable to take steps to have the obstruction removed.
This year's ScotWays AGM will be held at the Dewars Centre, Glover Street, Perth PH2 0TH on Saturday 17th November at 1.30pm.
For more information on the Dewars Centre location, please view details here.
The centre is a short walk from Perth railway station, and has plenty of parking.
Lunch will be available at 12 noon, for those who have booked. If you are wanting to attend and have lunch, we will need to know via the ScotWays office no later than Thursday 8th November.
For those not joining us for lunch, tea and coffee will be available before the AGM starts at 1.30pm.
We look forward to welcoming you on the day!
