1. APOLOGIES: Wendy Grannon, Cllr Martin Bartos,
2. MINUTES OF LAST MEETING: Proposed: Nick Bell Seconded: Caroline Johnston
3. ELECTED MEMBERS: Cllr Martin Rhodes: Weather – considering the conditions the overall response to the recent heavy snowfall was considered to be good. Let Martin know if any routes were missed off the priority list that should have been on it. Area Partnership – Caroline Johnston is our rep. Junction at Cleveden Road/Great Western Road – another person has approached Martin regarding this junction. Nick still analysing computer models and there has been another crash at the junction.
4. POLICE REPORT: There have been 17 police incidents over the past month (10 thefts, 2 road accidents, 2 anti-social behaviour 1 assault and 2 sexual offences).
5. 332 KELVINDALE ROAD Hugh McLelland, owner of the above site told those present what had been happening and what was planned for the site. He went into detail about the history of the planning application and works carried out so far. The rusty water is not coming from his site but from further up the hill probably from an old ironstone mine – the water is the responsibility of GCC. The site is currently for sale and Mr. McLelland is looking at different option available to him. Any interested parties are invited to visit the site and see what is going on there. Laura Sutherland commented that the site had often been noisy. Robin Cole at 334 said he did not consider the site to be noisy. Thank you to Mr. McLelland for coming to the meeting and explaining what he was doing on the site at 332 Kelvindale Road. KCC has referred the site to the Planning Enforcement Team for investigation. No response received.
6. TREASURER: Balance £940.11 7. MATTERS ARISING: Newsletter – ongoing Grit Bins – Martin to check if GCC would fill grit bins if KCC bought extra for the area.
Parking on Chesterfield Ave – Caroline Brazille, a resident of Chesterfield Ave, highlighted the parking issues on Chesterfield Avenue particularly when there were sports fixtures at Kelvinside Academy’s Balgray Campus. Coaches are parked on the double yellow lines instead of inside the ground in the car park. They are unable to turn and reverse down Chesterfield onto Great Western Road which is dangerous. The number of cars parked on the road means that when trying to get onto Great Western Road the sight line to the road is blocked and this is dangerous too. Mrs Brazille feels that Kelvinside Acadamy has become a nuisance neighbour. As parking powers have been deferred to GCC Cllr Rhodes will contact City Parking and Community Safety to pass on the
information regarding this situation. It would be helpful if Kelvinside Academy could work with the Community informing them of upcoming events.
Notre Dame High School – Glasgow City Council has said it will hold a consultation on whether Notre Dame High School should start taking in boys. Some local parents in the west end of Glasgow want their sons to go to Notre Dame. The consultation will start at some point after an ongoing review of school catchment areas across the city has been completed. 69% of the children come from parts of the city outside the school’s own catchment area. Mr Biguzzi and Mr Donnelly, local residents with children at Notre Dame Primary School, asked members to look at their facebook page, twitter feed and their petition – NDH4ALL- Notre Dame High School for All. Cllr. Rhodes is to ask for clarity on timescales.
Community Council Consultation – executive to meet separately and look at the information in detail
