The Independent councillor has complained to the legal department at North Aryshire Council and believes that the new outdoor seating area at the Barony Centre is contrary to the lease agreement for the site.

Mrs McLardy, MBE, stated that new outdoor decking has been built over a section of the church yard on top of graves, and was not part of the lease agreement.

The organisers of the Barony project insisted that they had acted with care and respect for surrounding graveyard.
