  • Enforcement issues :Wall in East Forth Street – the intention is still to have the wall rebuilt. The owners are aware of this and it was disappointing that the wall was not rebuilt before the start of Autumn. The Council have instructed that the wall be rebuilt using a lime mortar and the property owner emailed me a few weeks ago to advise that the builder they had lined up to carry out the work had advised (correctly) that using lime mortar when the temperature is likely to fall below 10 degrees and frost is also possible is not recommended. The property owners have said that their intention is to rebuild the wall in April 2018.  It is likely that a Planning Enforcement Notice will be served on the property owner detailing what requires to be done and within what timescale. Smugglers Inn – Trees – Correspondence has been ongoing between the council and Mr Thrupps agent regarding this matter. No further felling has taken place and a report by a tree surgeon has been prepared regarding the remaining trees. An application is to be submitted by the owner seeking to fell the remaining trees and the tree surgeons report will form part of this application.
