Cllr Murray Lyle

Elected in 2007 to represent the Strathallan Ward and  re-elected in 2012 and in 2017, Murray is spokesman on Environment issues for the Scottish Conservative group on Perth and Kinross Council.

Murray writes: "It has been a privilege to serve as the Scottish Conservative Councillor in Strathallan for the past 10 years and I would like to thank everyone who has supported me, and who voted to re-elect me.

"Perth & Kinross Council is not just about spending money in Perth City, it has to share its budgets around its rural communities.

"Now that I am re-elected, I will strive to get a fair share of the budget for Strathallan`s village communities. For example, hundreds of houses have been built in Auchterarder and still nothing has been done about the parking problems. Communities badly need new junctions onto the A9; these issues need to be addressed.

"Our rural villages need support from the Council, we need to improve roads, education and health provision. Parks and village halls must again be maintained to a high standard.

"Improvements to local mobile phone and broadband connections are essential in the countryside, I will continue to lobby for improved coverage.

"I have faced the challenges of the last 10 years and I look forward to continuing to serve all the people of Strathallan for another five years.


"My priorities for Strathallan

1.Continuing to work to improve parking in Auchterarder. Hundreds of homes built without improvements to infrastructure is unacceptable.

2.Encouraging new ‘start up’ businesses in Strathallan and help develop existing ventures. Lobby for broadband improvements

3. Campaigning for improvements to local roads maintenance and introduction of safety measures.

4.Challenging the SNP’s extortionate council tax hikes on hard-working families throughout Perth & Kinross.

5. Working  with communities to improve village halls and local parks.

6. Standing up to the SNP and their obsession with a second independence referendum. "
