Flag poles for academy

The Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee has given permission for Portlethen Academy to build three flag poles.

However during the discussion of the poles one Councilllor claimed that during a visit to Portlethen he was sure the School already had three flag poles. This raised questions over whether the School had built the poles ahead of time. Area Manager said that he would investigate these claims. He said: “That would be disappointing, that is not the way things are meant to be done.”

Some Councillors expressed concerns over the noise which the flag poles could create, the School is being asked to try and minimise this.
