Lochside Caravan park in Forfar was in line for a major face-lift after the Angus leisure and recreation committee agreed to a £240,000 project to provide an additional 24 pitches at the site and for majory refurbishment to the existing facilities.

Plans to extend the Stag Hotel in Forfar - rumoured in recent times to be the ancient seat of a Scottish King - took a step closer after planning permission was approved.
