Kintyre and Islands councillor Alastair Redman is raising safety concerns about ungritted pavements.
Councillor Redman says he has contacted Argyll and Bute Council’s roads department about the icy and at times un-gritted pavements in his ward after many concerned constituents have been in regular contact with him on the matter.
‘With all that’s going on, whether it’s the latest lockdown or a decreasing local authority budget, our hard working roads men are thinly stretched and do not have an easy task.
‘However, when it comes to our pavements and roads, safety must always come first.
Our pavements must be safe to walk on all year round,’ he said.
