The Community Council have been very busy since our last meeting and on behalf of our community we have engaged in the following:
Six members attended an ERC Planning Department training session led by Graham Shankland and Julie Nicol (Principal Planners), held at Eastwood House, Giffnock - presentation can be found here. There are currently planning proposals for eight sites within our CC area, and these will need scrutinised on every application.
We are currently focused on the Waterfoot Gladman application which is 1st in the planning queue. The CC will let you know when we receive a date for the Planning Application Committee meeting. This is the next stage of this application where the CC will have the opportunity to present the submitted objections in person.
Several new sub-committees have been established and meetings held with CC members who are subject matter experts, being either experienced, qualified, employed, or formerly employed in the area.
Please see below for direct contact details to the members leading them. Kindly note these sub committees are only for community council related business where issues may need elevated or for guidance and support on how to seek help. All matters will be treated in the strictest confidence.
