DCC will be holding a public meeting to discuss potential leisure facility closures, from 7-9pm, on Thursday 17th January 2019, at Whitehill Secondary School Auditorium, 280 Onslow Drive, G31 2QF.

In response to the phenomenal turnout at the DCC Ordinary Meeting on 8th January (see our previous post for notes of topics discussed and opinions heard), a Special Meeting was called and voted for unanimously by your Community Councillors. The Special Meeting is a public forum to discuss potential closures and/or cuts to services at our local leisure facilities.

Leaked documents are said to highlight that Whitehill Pool, Glasgow Club Haghill, and Alexandra Park Golf Course at risk in our community. Glasgow City Council’s budget will be voted on at GCC’s Full Council meeting on 21st February 2019.

There will be microphones and a video recording made to improve sound and accessibility. Your Community Councillors are also really keen to ensure we are hosting a meeting which is accessible in every way. If you, or someone you know, in our community requires a BSL interpreter, a quiet room or other additional needs, please contact our Chairperson Lauren Bennie via chair@dennistouncc.org.uk and your Community Councillors will do our best to support all your requests.

We want to make sure that this Public Meeting on Thursday 17 January is as accessible as possible. We’re thinking about everything from accessible seating, BSL interpretation if requested, a quiet room, video recording, and a sound system with microphones.

Thank you for your messages about your child care needs. We have a small Community Council allowance to support meetings and we are investigating contributing some of this to provide a childcare facility to allow as many of you to attend and contribute at this meeting. If you require this service, please contact Lauren at chair@dennistouncc.org.uk ASAP so we can gauge numbers and best understand your needs.
