Too long to wait

Waiting eight years to have proper sewage treatment at Brodick is not good enough. That was the view of several members of the public who attended the community council meeting on Tuesday.

They were there because Martin Brown of West of Scotland Water was visiting to speak at the meeting.

Mr Brown explained that in cleaning up the waters in the Clyde they had to tackle the most urgent problems first. This will be to end the days of the sludge boat, the Shieldhall, which dumps Glasgow sewage at Garroch head off Bute, less than 10 miles from Arran. Priority will be given to areas with larger populations and those further up the estuary before Arran.
