Happy Friday everyone!

I have been uploading lots of minutes and agendas to your community council pages. If you’ve sent stuff in the past week, please check to see whether or not it’s there; hopefully it should be.

Please remember to always send minutes and agendas to communityplanning@angus.gov.uk and not any council officer’s personal email address. This is to ensure we can file everything appropriately and allows all members of the Community Engagement Team to access the files in case there are any queries.

Thanks for your help and have a wonderful weekend!

Breath of fresh air

Views sought on new national strategy to tackle air pollution.

A consultation has been launched on proposals aimed at making Scotland’s air amongst the cleanest in Europe.

For the next 12 weeks, the Scottish Government is formally seeking views on its draft national Low Emission Strategy.

It sets out action already being taken by the Scottish Government and its agencies, health boards and local authorities to tackle air pollution. It also contains proposals for improving air quality across the country by, for example, better co-ordinating policies at national and local level.

You may wish to respond as a community council, or as an individual. For more information, click here.

HO, HO, HO!

Kevin, Lynn and the rest of the team who provide support to community councils in Angus wish you a very Merry Christmas and our very best wishes for 2015!

We look forward to working with you all closely in 2015 and beyond.

Relax, have fun and have a great time with your loved ones!
