A visitor to the Community Council explained that she had sent several letters of complaint regarding the "Traffic Calming" measures in Kilmacolm Road as in her opinion they actually increase the danger. Although she had written to various departments within Renfrewshire Council all the way to the Planning Department she
has not had a satisfactory reply, and one of our village Councillors had told her that nothing could be done.
Councillor Langlands is going to make inquires on the matter.

Cllr. Langlands was asked if he could intervene in dispute with a local resident and BT. A misunderstanding by BT had resulted in this resident having the telephone number that had been hers for over 40 years being taken from her and given to another customer. Broadband facilities had also been lost. Although a new number had been offered, the resident considered that the original number was hers and that there would be considerable inconvenience if it were to be changed. She has also had problems with the Royal Mail, due to a number at the Old School, commercial senders omit to put in the Old School as part of the address only the flat number which is the same as hers. Cllr. Langlands will make enquiries into this.
