At the regular meeting of River Community Council in the URC hall last night a member of the public raised the possibility of moving Doctor Grigor’s statue from Viewfield back to the High Street. Cllr Liz MacDonald then told the
“We were actually talking about this on Monday, about moving the statue because in a couple of weeks at our ward business meeting we’re having someone through from the planning authority to see if we can take the proposals from the charrette forward and one of the things we were talking about was seeing if the statue could go into Castle Square – at the corner so it is at a prominent site and didn’t tie up the whole square so we could still have markets and things in there. So it is something we have discussed so it is nice to hear it being brought up at the community council.”
