By popular demand, we are very pleased to confirm that 10 new nextbike stations will soon open across the South Side and East End of Glasgow. And Dennistoun is a part of the expansion.
Would you like to see the Glasgow hire bikes come to Dennistoun? See below for the story so far.
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.
Some people experience difficulty getting to hospitals by public transport in the evening, particularly older people, people living with a disability, or in receipt of benefits.
The Evening Hospital Visitor Transport Service will collect you from your home (or as near as possible), take you to your nearest hospital and take you home again.
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.
Throughout March, Glasgow City Council, Glasgow 2014 Ltd and Police Scotland are holding local information sessions to help you find out more about what hosting the Games in Glasgow will mean for you.
Dennistoun Community Council has previously held public meetings to discuss local bus services. Further information on the outcome, including a response from First Buses can be found via DCC news posts here and here.
More recently, Patrick Harvie MSP has written to DCC to inform us of the Better Buses campaign that is underway, which aims to take the most important bus-related issues and develop a plan for better buses that can be taken to parliament.
As previously indicated, Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) has taken the opportunity to respond to the ‘Rail 2014’ public consultation.
The response is largely driven by significant and widespread concern in relation to perceived intention to close Duke Street railway station, and consists of both the pro forma feedback form and a letter incorporating comments made at community council meetings and online.
What is Neighbourhood Management?
Neighbourood Management is a process where local communities and agencies, such as Glasgow City Council, the police, and local housing associations, work together to improve local public services by making decisions based on evidence and the views of the local people who live in the area.
In Autumn/Winter 2010/11, the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership carried out a representative survey of almost 7,000 city residents to find out what they thought about their local area – this included 503 interviews in the East Centre ward.
This report summarises what people in the East Centre ward area said about their local neighbourhood, what they liked about living there and what they’d like to improve.
