STONEHAVEN & District Community Council meet tomorrow night (Tuesday, October 10) for an agenda ranging from dangerous dogs to fly posting.

One item that may prove contentious is a discussion on whether to continue with hybrid meetings – why not come along in person or join in remotely to hear the debate?

Also on the agenda are recent planning applications for five houses and six flats at the former gas works in the old town, and an extention to Fetteresso Cemetery.

The meeting is held in the former court house in the County Buildings on Dunnnottar Avenue and starts at 7pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
