Applications for planning consent have plunged 24% between 2007 and 2009 with Aberdeen down by 28%. This all shows that the economy is still locked in a desperate recession with no light showing at the end of the tunnel. The green shoots – if there were any – have been killed off by the worst winter in 30 years and, greedy Highland Councillors aside, everyone is suffering.
Visit Scotland of course is in its home country of cloud cuckoo land – where everything is always better than last year and everybody has rose tinted spectacles.It looks ever more silly as an organisation and should be scrapped.
