One thought on “Our Growing Town

  1. The biggest problem in Blairgowrie is ‘traffic’, too many vehicles are being led a merry dance through the town and, with larger and larger HGV’s trying to negotiate sharp bends (Reform Street/ Perth Road) we are in danger of having a serious accident. The planned housing developments will only add to the problems and it seems that PKC are turning a blind eye to this. Dare I say it that Blair needs a bye-pass over a new bridge to take those HGV’s not delivering into Blair, away from the town. Inadequate parking in Blair needs to be addressed and I would like to see a multi-storey car park built in the old Tesco car park. This would not be obtrusive and would not look out of place in this location.
    Another plan missing in Blair is commercial development. What are PKC doing to encourage firms into the area rather than the current trend to have Blair as a commuter town, feeding Dundee and Perth!
