Protect the Whitesands, Dumfries from Council-backed development
In 2015 Dumfries and Galloway Council asked its people their opinion on proposed flood protection solutions for the Whitesands area of the town. After consultation, people were asked to choose between three options put forward by the council despite there being less expensive and more popular alternatives in the frame.
On November 10th, despite huge disapproval by the people of Dumfries, the Council voted to create an Earth Bund, taking away views of the river and substantial car parking and creating the potential for an extended period of havoc for businesses and town dwellers alike.
We, the undersigned, ask that the decision be overturned and better and less expensive alternatives be considered.
