Councillors' Warning for Stranraer

COUNCILLORS have warned that "Stranraer will die" if the seafront project is jeopardised.

At the Wigtown West Area committee meeting last Wednesday, it was proposed that a council member should head the working group to ensure the smooth running of the project.

Tony Fitzpatrick, from the council's economic regeneration department, said the "bold and ambitious" project, carried out by Dumfries and Galloway Council and Scottish Enterprise, was "on track."

But councillors said with so much at stake the council should have more involvement at a local level. Tommy Sloan said:

"I am pleased with the pace this thing is going at and Tony (Fitzpatrick) is doing a great job - but we have to remember he is doing it along with his day job.

"We need someone else as well who is doing this and this alone to show Enterprise that we are serious.

"Stranraer would die if the Waterfront issue was not seen through. We would simply become a tourist town that often does not have many tourists in it."
