Claadehol posted a topic in Shetland NewsSignificant leak at lighthouse tearoom I remember speaking to a veteran and well respected builder at the end of last summer. He was involved with the lighthouse project at one point and was absolutely appalled at the standard of some of the work carried out. I didn't take a great deal of notice of his comments at the time, but judging by what I have just been reading here, his criticism seems well founded. This project cost over £5,000,000 for christs sake, surely it could have stayed watertight at least for a few years. Where was building control on this one? And don't bleat about the Shetland weather, we should know how to cope with that. And by the way the Mousa broch is still standing, no computers, no laser levels, just good civil engineering skills back then!
Shetlands Amenity Trust
Turtle Kebab posted a topic in Shetland NewsI've only been living in Shetland a few years now having moved here from Cornwall with my family... My move was spurred by memories of my father who spoke fondly of the island, its wildlife and its honest hard working get up and go people... in my short time here i can understand where his opinion came from. i love it so, i relocated my business here, and as such make a good living... an 'honest' income... However, In my short time here i have come to realise there are so many false economies that flourish with free money, one such elephant/s in the room are the departments of Shetlands Amenity Trust that deal with scrap vehicles and stone masonry... ive never seen such a blatant conflict with private business, does anyone know the yearly expenditure of these departments? Or in Shetland. Hoo much money do dey sook?
