Roads and Lighting

 The removal of a section of Hedge in Cathkin Road was noted as was works’ vehicles parking at
the bend on Cathkin Road.
 It was noted that “newer” buses had been used on the 31 service. This is probably due to being
cascaded down from the services who received new buses. Councillor Morgan said that she had
asked First Group about new buses for the service.
Linn Area Committee
There is to be a site meeting with the Council to see what progress has been made in scoping the
improvement of the play area at the school end of the park..
Councillor Morgan noted that if we wished to bid for additional equipment from Linn Area, deadline for
bids was August.
John asked if there had been any problems with distribution of spring newsletter. None were
reported. He also sought agreement that an autumn newsletter be produced and he should
approach the Council for a grant. This was agreed.
On the subject of the autumn newsletter, John said that inputs would need to be ready for start of
September to distribute prior to the AGM in October.
 It was agreed that Alex should continue to progress CCTV project. It was suggested he seek advice on
use of CCTV in a public area.
 We were told that someone had approached a Police car and reported fly tipping at Pedmyre. It was
reported that the Police did not seem interested. This is worrying. Tipping at Pedmyre is now
happening at 2-3 times per month.
