Planning and Licensing.
Bedrock has put in a pre-application notice to have a new industrial process on Waterbank Farm. This
crushing plant will take used building materials, clean them and recycle them. A similar application was
refused in 2011. Robert has listed several objections to new aspect at bedrock:
1. Bedrock is still on the Green belt and didn’t gain approval for their original use of land.
2. the land has already been greatly altered, the crushing plant will distort the land even more.
3. it isn’t clear where the dirty water would go, with the agriculture land around the plant this could
4. the pre-application outlines then would have around 100,000 tonnes of building materials coming in
and out of the plant each year. This equates to around 96 vehicles a week traveling into the plant. As
there is no official agreement between the community council and Bedrock around not driving
through the village this could cause major traffic problems within, and around, the village.
Robert must wait until a full application is put forward in order to outline our complaints. He will also
contact the Scottish National Trust as they supported the village with the 2011 application objections.
Roads and Lighting
The light at the bottom of Bankhead Road is still not working as well as a light on Cameron Crescent.

Councillor Morgan is going to investigate the lack of painted road lines at Hillcrest and Kittockside.
Councillor Morgan is also going to look into who owns the old walkway between the Dickie Houses

Linn Area Committee
Marion, Ashley and John had a meeting with Glasgow City Council members on how to move further
with the funding application for the park. We have found out we can get a maximum of £7,000 from
the Linn Area Committee and £5,000 from the Windpark Trust due to match funding.
Derek is going to get in contact with other groups within the village in order to apply for more
funding for the village from the Linn Area Committee and Windpark Trust.
The newsletter will be produced in May.
The AGM will be held in the third week of May, all welcome.
Robert looked into the lack of fibre broadband in the village and has found out that a new cabinet
has been installed partially resolving the issue as it has allowed residents at the bottom of the village
to gain fibre broadband.
The Carmunnock Clean Up will be on the 27th of April. Hopefully this time of year will allow for a
John has contacted the council regarding the wooden fence that is off at the low green and they are
