Finlay repeats calls for Whitesands to be axed


“Ever since the plans for the Whitesands Flood Scheme were first brought to the table, I have been firmly opposed to them.

“They are not wanted by local residents and businesses and I hope that this inquiry will recognise that.

“It is welcome that the inquiry is set to take place in a much shorter time frame than was initially planned as local people and residents deserve to have answers as quickly as possible.

“We have far more pressing problems across Dumfries and Galloway that are of a priority for residents and I once again call on the Labour-SNP administration to ditch the scheme once and for all.”
