What a change. Crisp sunny frosty windless morning. GNER allegedly on time after total disruption yesterday
with wrong type of wind in air. So it is to Ould Reekie with its dog infested beggars, aggressive Big Issue sellers, persistent clipboard weilding opinion takers, opulent dentists and the delicious display only sandwiches in John Lewis to enjoy with cold cappuchino.
And then the Community Council (after a break of over two months) with the issue of Farmer C's six 'equestrian houses' to debate. They drive a coach and horses (well horses especially) through the structure plan, the draft local plan, Building in the Countryside policy and therefore stand a good chance of approval by the Berwickshire Area Committee. If Farmer C can get away with this then it will open the doors (floodgates?) for other landowners. Oops!
