Balmossie Fire Station Saved - Thanks to Thousands of Active Citizens

This morning the Tayside Fire & Rescue Board met in Perth and decided, by ten votes in favour and eight votes against, not to downgrade Balmossie Fire Station.

I welcome this decision, which is a victory for common sense. I want to thank the thousands of active citizens in Broughty Ferry who submitted objections to the proposals and made Councillors on the Fire & Rescue Board think again. That is no bad thing in a democracy.

I understand that Dundee's SNP Councillor Roberts voted to downgrade Balmossie ignoring the decision of the City Council's Policy & Resources Committee and the remainder of her Dundee Councillor colleagues on the Board. I think she she should resign her position as Vice Chairperson of the Board. Who does she think she is representing on the Board?
