The Environmental Task Force (ETF) provided a Ward activity update at the recent Ward 13 Garscadden/Scotstounhill Area Partnership meeting. The Ward covers Yoker, Knightswood and Scotstoun neighbourhoods.

This report provides details of ETF within Ward 13 and it gives a snapshot of information on the communications channels used to report issues to the ETF.

The establishment of the Environmental Task Force (ETF) marked a new approach to service delivery along thematic lines rather than more traditional departmental lines. This new approach encourages integrated working across a range of Council Family services to a common theme. It creates a framework for various services from across the Council Family and partner organisations to share common objectives, a shared understanding of success, and improved targeting and coordination of services.

You can download the report from the Council website or here 20180424_Ward13_AP_ETF_Report_Apr17-Jan18
