However, it is evident that a more accessible version of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document may be of use in instances where the PDF or JPEG formats are not ideal or preferred. Accordingly, the applicable FAQ information provided by Glasgow City Council is reproduced below.
Glasgow City Council is proposing parking controls, 20 mph speed limits and various new one way streets for Dennistoun as part of the ‘Dennistoun and Royston Parking Controls’ proposal. These proposals can be viewed via glasgow.gov.uk/dennistounandroyston.
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.
Thank you to the more than 250 community members who joined DCC’s Public Meeting to save Haghill and Dennistoun leisure facilities from potential cuts. BoltFM‘s full unedited meeting footage is now online. View below or via this link.
The Dennistoun choir is back! After the success of 2017’s In the Beginning, tickets are going on sale for this year’s concert! The choir needed a bigger show-stopping venue so while the show might not be in Dennistoun this year, it’s full of our local performers (based at St Andrew’s East Parish Church on Alexandra Parade for Monday rehearsals)!
