POLICE REPORT:

CLEVEDEN SCHOOL PITCH:
Anti social behaviour and excessive noise was being experienced as early as 5.40am in the morning. The local campus police officer intervened and has managed to arrange police support in moving on the elements that were causing the problems. He has also talked to Amey, the company who look after the premises on behalf of the school and signage has now been put in place stating the permitted hours of use. It is believed that Amey are going to look at the way that the premises are locked and patrolled. Thanks to the police for their actions on this.
 
BRIDGE TO DAWSHOLM PARK:
People have been trying to access the park and finding that the walk across the bridge is both dangerous and very difficult to negotiate, especially if they have children with them. Recent road works have not helped the situation. Richard Andrews has been looking at this matter and is currently spearheading a concerted effort to get as many people on board as possible to resolve this situation. E-mail GCC (George Gillespie); elected members happy to support this.

Cleveden Community Club (CCC)
GCC has increased the rental for space in Cleveden School from £70 to £600 for 2 hours on a Sunday. Around 40 – 50 families come on a regular basis to the Club. The let is regular and not a new let this year. Cllr Rhodes has contacted GCC regarding the charges and is waiting for a reply. The Club could try for funding from the Community Fund at the Area Partnership. Wendy to draft letter to Bernadette Moynahan at Grants on behalf of KCC.

Defibrillators
Stuart Mathewson from St. John Scotland gave us an informative demonstration on how to use a defibrillator answering any questions we had. St. John is matching any funding raised in Ward 23 and defibrillators have already been installed at Catanis, Hyndland House and Waitrose. If we can find a suitable location for a defibrillator in Kelvindale St. John would install one for us at no cost but we would be liable for the running costs of about £15/year for electricity. Suggestions for suitable locations welcomed.

November Meeting – Proposed: Caroline Johnston; Seconded Rosemary Guerier
Bins (Brendan Frankgate, LES)
Brendan Frankgate of LES gave the meeting an overview of what was happening with the bins in the city.  Small lamppost bins are being replaced with larger bins – although there will be fewer bins the bins we will have will have much larger capacity.  The bins are being monitored to see how they are working and will be emptied anything up to every two weeks but can be emptied sooner if necessary.  Any issues regarding visibility or blocking should be fed back to LES either on the One Glasgow App or on 1 800 9000 700.
Dorchester Ave Bins: Following a risk assessment it was decided that the new bins could not safely be brought down steps, which are in very poor condition, to the bin lorry.  The decision was made to situate large 1280L and 1100L bins on the pavement.  Residents feel the current situation is not working, the elderly have difficulty with the size of the bins and bins are not being emptied to schedule.  The look of the street is not enhanced by these large bins.  If any residents have problems using the bins please feedback to the staff at Dawsholm and they will try and find a solution.  For the bins to be situated at the back of the flats it would require cooperation with the residents of the Weymouth  Drive flats.  Residents should think about forming a Residents Association to try and find a solution to this problem as LES are willing to listen to ideas.  LES will also send a letter to residents asking if they have any problems with the bins.
Police Repor
Police gave a detailed overview of crimes recorded in the local area – 28 crimes in total of which 16 were thefts, 3 violence, 8 anti-social behaviour and 1 reckless conduct.
Monday 14 January 2019 – there were two armed robberies in the area (seven incidents in total that evening).  One person (23 years) was arrested and in custody and the Police are confident they will get the other suspect.  As the investigation is ongoing that was all they could say at the moment but if you see anything suspicious call 101.
Elected Members
Cllr Rhodes:
Bins – not an ideal situation but they should be getting emptied on the correct day.
Traffic signs Cleveden Road – issue raised
Cllr Bartos:
M4/94 Buses – one bus per service with the length of journey different for both.  There is no opportunity during the journey to allow the buses to run through Kelvindale at different times.  Both buses are totally underwritten by SPT therefore ‘use it or loose it’.

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.

8. AOB:

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

1 Response to COUNCIL MINUTES

  1. Susan Finnigan says:

    Can I ask the opinion of the community council and the issue of residents keeping all their bins in the lanes
    They are a particular nuisance as after collection as the council workers leave the bins all over the place meaning it is nigh impossible to drive up the lanes to garage access
    Some residents are of the mindset bins out of sight out of mind
    The state of the lanes are quite frankly now disgraceful
