Brechin’s future – Angus / Local / News / The Courier
COMMERCE, RELIGION and disease held sway over an Angus burgh over the centuries, with boom and bust a frequent visitor.
The town of Brechin and its surroundings have grown and shrunk in its 1,000-year history and the area is in a period of transition. Now, its future is the subject of a document entitled A Vision of Brechin, which looks likely be approved by councillors today and the people and businesses of Brechin are being asked to take part in a community discussion on the way ahead – a decision that could affect the lives of generations – at a meeting to be arranged later this year. A report by neighbourhood services director Ron Ashton goes before Angus councillors in Forfar today.
