No problem with workers (Davy Napier)

Unlike Sandy McMillan (Readers’ Views, 31st July) I will not say I am writing on behalf of the residents near the new school works.

But as one of the nearest residents we knew that there was going to possibly be accommodation coming below us. We have no objection to that.

One of the senior team for this work spoke to my wife at our fence and told her about some of the works that would be happening, and that they would be sending out letters to all the near residents to inform them and that there would be helpline numbers to contact them with any concerns, and they would get in touch to try and resolve anything.

At this stage, we are probably one of the nearest residents to the present works, and we have resolved any issues we had directly with them and never had any problems with the work so far.

    Yes your right Davy I am certainly nothing like you, thank God for that, The Resident in both the North and South Lochside approached me to find out about the Work Camp, which I did.
    Being the nearest to the site is in doubt as the Resident along the area of the round about are as close, You have a very short memory, would it not be neighbourly to keep your neighbour informed of your findings,
    You are usually quite good at informing others so I cant understand why you want to keep this to your self,
    This Camp will affect everyone in the area believe you me.
