The condition of East Kintyre’s Brackley cemetery is deteriorating to an unacceptable state with numerous head stones knocked over and many of the footpaths completely overgrown.

In the past new foot paths have been promised by Argyll and Bute Council’s roads and amenities department yet they have still not been constructed.

I have contacted the roads department and urged them to rectify this problem with all haste.

Many Carradale residents have welcomed the potholes being filled in on Shore Road.

That said these repairs will only likely last six months at the most. For a more long term solution resurfacing will need to be done.

In the village of Tarbert I continue to be contacted by, justifiably angry, ACHA tenants where in some cases couples with three children are forced to stay in two bedroom flats.

I understand that there are budget restraints for the housing associations, but recently they have been increasing our social housing stock and clearly more needs to be done.

Housing associations must build properties in the small towns and villages of Argyll not just the large towns.
