MSP Welcomes 'Radar' Installation to Monitor Gardenstown Landslip

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson visited Gardenstown today (Friday) at the invitation of Troup councillor Ross Cassie to see the area affected by the landslip in the village.
Whilst there, Mr Stevenson met with local residents and officials from the Roads Department at Aberdeenshire Council who briefed him on the engineering and geological surveys being carried out in the area. Mr Stevenson welcomed the deployment of a radar system to monitor any further slippage on the slope.

Commenting following his visit, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“It was useful to see the situation at first hand and meet with affected constituents and officials from the Roads Department who were on-site.

“This is having a serious effect on the community. I was briefed on the engineering and geological surveys being undertaken. I am pleased that a radar system to monitor any further slippage from the slope is being installed and hopefully this will give some further reassurance to local residents.

“I also understand today that Aberdeenshire Council has made an approach to the Scottish Government for assistance in discharging their responsibilities to the community and I will be seeking to encourage a positive response to that request.”
