Council Chair received letter from Area Manager. This referred
to correspondence between CC and Local members regarding provision
of two lay-bys on Tolquhon road. It had been reported that
Planners were to re negotiate with applicant, however it was
unclear if this happened. Members agreed that there was no
requirement for Area manager to intervene in correspondence
between CCs and Local members and that there was a need for AC to
