The members of the Gatehouse Community Council
Chairman and Provost
Sue Best (Dean of Guild)
Member of the Community Council since 2001 and member of the Gatehouse Development Initiative since 2003.
Represent the Council on the Gatehouse Development Initiative, the Cally Designed Landscape Committee, the Local Housing Group, the Japanese Knotweed Eradication Programme, and the Council’s Planning Committee. I am also a member of the Fleet Valley Countryside Team (volunteers).
On behalf of the Council I pursue matters relating to the environment and infrastructure in and around town. Subjects under discussion are the A75 junction with the A727, National Trust for Scotland Vinniehill site, path alongside the mill pond, and various safety matter in town.
I compiled the schedule of areas of knotweed in and around town and record the effect of the spraying which takes place twice a year.
On behalf of the Gatehouse Development Initiative I am investigating the stabilisation of the structure which was once the old school by the Cally Lake and increasing awareness of the snowdrop festival relative to the Cally Woods.
Allan Lowden is Town Crier and District Secretary of the Galloway Scouts.
