The first ever Public Meeting for Pollokshields East was hosted at the Pollokshields Church with a strong attendance of 60 residents. Representatives from Land and Environmental Services, the local Police and the Pollokshields Trust were in attendance to discuss speeding cars and safer roads. There was a Q&A session and residents were clearly passionate with many ideas to share. Now, residents have an excellent opportunity to help inform service providers of how to better tackle long-standing traffic issues. A traffic feasibility study will be taking place and some ‘expert volunteers’ who have an interest/vocation in traffic are keen to come together to make a change with residents. The Community Council made a call for the establishment of a Steering Group on Traffic and several residents expressed an appetite to get involved. The Steering Group will be assisted by the Pollokshields Trust, which is an enabling body, and will offer broader support along with access to crucial resources.
The full minutes of the Public Meeting will be discussed at the Community Councils’ next meeting on the 6th November at the Pollokshields Community Hall, 7pm. Minutes will be posted on the blog too. There is a plan to have more public meetings in the future. If you would like to get involved with the Steering Group please get in touch.
A big thank you to our speakers, the Church for hosting us, and to all the residents who came out despite the bad weather.
