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.

In Autumn 2016 the Council commissioned EKOS Consultants to undertake a Community Placemaking exercise for Victoria Park to find a way forward together in collaboration with the stakeholders and community representatives of the surrounding areas of the park.

The placemaking exercise involved a series of community events and meetings and concluded in March 2017 when the consultants produced a draft Action Plan and draft Strategic Development Plan for the Park.

At this time it was unclear how things would progress and so DRCET offered to facilitate a further series of meetings of the community stakeholders and representatives to consider the two draft plans. This offer was accepted by those that had been involved with the Placemaking exercise and the Victoria Park Working Group was established. The list of organisations involved is shown below.

Following the discussions of the Working Group it was agreed, as per the findings of the Placemaking exercise, that a new organisation be set up to take forward the delivery of the Strategic Development Plan. More information about this will be available in due course.

All the reports and papers from the Community Placemaking exercise and the Working Group meeting notes are available on the Council website.

Scotstoun Community Council recently unveiled a new mural on Balmoral Street bridge which was created by local artistic young people.

The Community Council has been working in partnership with DRC Youth Project, Community Safety Glasgow, Glasgow City Council, Sustrans Scotland and some local businesses to create the mural.

The street art project was created to inspire and involve local young people in improving their neighbourhood. It aims to boost participants’ self-confidence and break down barriers between different generations.

Professional graffiti artist, Danny McDermott (known as EJEK), worked with teenagers from Dumbarton Road Corridor (DRC) Youth Project to design and create the large graffiti mural, costing almost £6500, to enhance the bridge’s appearance.

Ben Harris (15) said: “We’re all proud of the mural and it was good that we could put our names on it. Dan was cool and we learned a lot from him. We worked on it over a couple of months and I’d like to do it again. Sometimes older people are worried when they see young folk in the street – even when we’re just walking along. It’s good that they can see us doing something good for the community.”

Well done to everyone involved – a great example of the community working together for the benefit of everyone.
