Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) is keen to see improvements in our streetscape to help create better safer streets for all as part of a thriving sustainable future for Dennistoun.
In recent months this has been primarily via communication with Councillors. Prior to that, DCC has requested that Glasgow City Council carry out a full review of and consultation on traffic and parking issues in Dennistoun. This has been met with some positive engagement but clear strategy and messaging has not been forthcoming. DCC therefore understands the confusion and frustration voiced by some residents when hearing of recent RPZ and LTN proposals.
Dennistoun Councillor Kim Long has arranged a drop-in meeting with Glasgow Airport in relation to the new flightpath consultation, to allow members of the public to meet directly with airport staff and find out how these changes may affect them. This meeting will be held between 5pm and 8pm on Wednesday 28th March at Whitehill Secondary School, Onslow Drive, Dennistoun, G31 2QF.
Glasgow Airport are undertaking a consultation regarding proposed changes to approach and departure flight paths and procedures arising from updates to air traffic control navigation systems due to take place in 2019. Dennistoun Community Council has been identified as a consultee.
At this time of year especially, everyone across Scotland is being encouraged to think ahead and be prepared for all kinds of winter weather. Whether it is at home, on the move, in the workplace, or in your community, we all need to consider the risk of severe weather.
A series of local events are being held for residents and businesses near Commonwealth Games venues or cultural live sites, offering useful information on the changes they can expect to see in the lead up to and during Games time, how to prepare for potential alterations to daily routines and how to ensure they can make the most of the opportunity to get involved.
Snow Wardens support Glasgow City Council Land and Environmental Services‘ (LES) winter gritting service by co-ordinating groups of local volunteers to hand grit locations important to their local communities.
