Matters Arising and AOCB
Flytipping: Land and Environmental Services have secured funding to purchase
flytipping signs and will be placing them on known sites. The day for bulk removal on
Fordyce Street is Wednesday. The squad that removes bulk items generally clears all
black bags there also Stewartville Street and other locations. LES officers will be
checking black bags etc to find the culprits and deal with the problem
Carriageway Investment: The following streets were identified as in need of repair:-
Burgh Hall Street; Merkland Street: Vine Street; Gardner Street: North Gardner Street:
Hyndland Street: South Crow Road: Byres Road: Sawmill/Thornwood Roundabout:
Dumbarton Road between Crow Road and Byres Road also its pavement and some
kerbstones which are dangerous to pedestrians.
Mansfield Park: LES have chained a security fence to two trees for twice monthly
banner advertising of the Farmers’ Market the chains are badly damaging the young trees
bark and the fence is being used for illegal flyposting and cable tied notices which the
ground maintenance teams are ignoring. There is no safety fencing between the park and
Hyndland Road and Dumbarton Road could part of the Phase 2 funding be used to
remedy this before young childrens’injuries and fatalities occur. Letter to be sent to
West End Retail Park: Savills have taken over the property from the previous owners
so a letter is to be sent to see if they could sort out the various problems we raised that the
previous owners ignored, including safety for pedestrians at entrances.
