Seeing red over many colours

As a local resident I feel I need to bring to readers’ attention the erection of the multi-coloured stone wall that is under construction in Ladhope Vale, Galashiels.

I have had several conversations with the planning department and Network Rail, and they have advised me that they have stopped using the lilac-coloured stone, but are halfway through the wall’s construction and will not take down what is already erected.

There are three different types of wall within 100 yards – the latest looks like a 1970s fireplace.

I have asked for an on-site meeting with all parties concerned.
