Health and Social Care Locality Plans

Health and Social Care Partnerships are required to produce locality plans for each area and I am pleased that following a period of consultation and engagement with local working groups and communities outline plans have been developed, identifying key priorities for each locality.

I hope you are able to take the time to review these and I am keen to seek your comments and views to inform these moving forward.

The plans are out for public consultation from July 17 until September 16 2017. Comments and feedback can be given in the following ways:

Full plans can be viewed and commented upon online here

Disabled Parking Bays at Eyemouth Community Centre

For some  considerable time the signage for Disabled Parking Bays at Eyemouth Community Centre has been so faded, that non Blue Badgre Holders would just park in them.   Whilst the faded signs (below) remain the good news is that Scottish Borders Council Road Marking team have recently been along and clearly marked ‘Disabled only’ on the ground.  Thank you Scottish Borders Council.  Until such times the signage is renewed, this ought to help keep the bays clear for the use of Blue Barge Holders only.
