Public Meeting Invitee Clarification

In advance of recent articles about Dennistoun Community Council’s Public Meeting, DCC was contacted by The Evening Times to clarify who was invited to our Public Meeting on Thursday 17th January 2019.

Our comments and attributable quotes made clear the circumstances around meeting invitations but they were not used by the journalist.

As a politically neutral constituted community group, DCC would like to provide this same clarity publically in light of these recent articles in an attempt to diffuse any political tensions in our community on this subject.

Quote provided on 18th January to the Evening Times:

“There appears to be some confusion about who was invited to what meeting and by what group. A full list of those invited by Dennistoun Community Council to the DCC Public Meeting on Thursday 17th January can be found on the Representatives page of As referenced at the Public Meeting by Cllr Elaine McDougall, DCC was emailed prior to the Public Meeting with the suggestion that Glasgow Life representatives attend a future meeting. DCC responded to this email requesting clarity on the ask and a response has not been received to date. What was clear at the Public Meeting, was the will of the community and all represented political parties to get behind the Save Whitehill Pool campaign to save all our local leisure facilities from potential cuts and closure ahead of Glasgow City Council’s budget vote on 21st February.”
