Planning Officials say: “Santa’s reindeer may not be coming to Scotland this year…”

A Scottish Council is clamping down on unauthorised outbreaks of Santa Claus and reindeers!

A Scottish Council is clamping down on unauthorised outbreaks of Santa Claus and reindeers!

A Labour-led Scottish Council has tried to evict Santa Claus from his proposed grotto near Kilmarnock, and before you ask, no it’s not North of the Arctic Circle!

A local farmer, who impersonates the well-known Christmas personality, has been refused planning permission for a sign advertising his coming to the area. Leaving Santa and his real reindeer, with nowhere to raise much-needed funds for local charities.

The local farmer, Paul Gibson, has hit out at North Ayrshire Council, accusing them of lacking Christmas spirit, and you can hardly blame him.

A spokesman for North Ayrshire Council declined to comment on suggestions the council lacked Christmas spirit, insisting that the issue was “purely a planning matter”.

This is one of those examples of bureaucracy beating common sense. I suspect this will be happening in other areas across the country and it’s important that local authorities get into the Christmas spirit when the time comes.
