Killylour water plant upgrade decision deferred

Councillors have deferred a decision on whether to approve a £3m upgrade to a south of Scotland water treatment plant despite local objections.

Scottish Water wants to make the investment at its Killylour site near Shawhead in Dumfries and Galloway.

It says the works will allow it to increase the amount of high quality water provided for the area.

However, some residents have objected - raising concerns about the design, traffic and impact on wildlife.

Councillors had been advised to approve the scheme but with a number of conditions attached.
