Colin Milne (Trustee)

Since that time Colin has worked in Ayrshire every Monday to Wednesday and in Angus and Dundee every Thursday to Saturday. Over the last 44 years he has covered some 2.4 million miles but more importantly over that time he has literally made hundreds of contacts in the agricultural and transport related businesses.
When he was a child, each evening Colin would stand at the top of Buttars Loan watching all the lorries go by and hoped that one day he would have his own collection of vehicles...
Neil Gellatly (Trustee)
As Dundee City Council’s Head of Roads and Transportation Neil oversaw many major capital investment schemes and behaviour change projects. Transportation policy was set through sound partnership working between officials and politicians wanting to push the agenda.
Day to day the core task was making the city tick along and accommodate growth for the future. This included great public transport (50% population don’t have daily access to private transport), active travel, road safety, network management, roads maintenance, parking, traffic orders, street lighting, urban traffic control / intelligent traffic systems, school transport, fleet operations, project management, future planning, supporting city region, advisors and licensing support. It is a great job for a very proud Dundonian with a love for good transport (Neil was born to be the Fat Controller!) But being a scientist and wanting to help reduce the environmental impact of transport, he was always looking at new ways to improve sustainable mobility and this was the start of a decade of working with amazing people that brought Dundee to forefront of the Fuels of the Future.
