Scam Warning

Several people in the Stonehaven area have received phone calls recently purporting to be from "Microsoft Windows" about "virus problems reported by your internet service provider". These calls are scams. Microsoft does not make unsolicted phone calls to help you fix your computer. If you recieve an unsolicted call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft, just hang up.

There will be a meeting to discuss the Local Development Plan and the current 'state of play' at Catterline School on Thursday 23rd September 2010 at 7.30pm. Piers Blaxter from Aberdeenshire Council will be present to answer questions.

Proposed Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan available online

The draft Local Development Plan for Aberdeenshire is now online. Stonehaven/Dunnottar/Touks and Kinneff are covered in the Kincardine Settlements Statement Part 2, and Catterline is mentioned in the Housing and business development in the Countryside document. Full details can be found here.

The proposals are being presented to the Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee and Infrastructure Services Committee on March 9th and 10th. According to the Aberdeenshire web site, "these draft LDP settlement and site proposals are based on internal and external stakeholder consultation and submissions from the public consultation on the Main Issues Report. These are likely to change as they progress through the Area Committees and Infrastructure Services Committee".
