DRCET_SchoolRunSummit_2018_HeaderAre you affected by the school run at your school? Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels are hosting our second School Run Summit on the morning of Tuesday 2 October at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, 64 Balmoral Street, Glasgow G14 0BL

The event will bring together a wide range of people and organisations from the G11/G12/G13/G14/G15 postcode areas to share knowledge and experience of the school run. This will include pupils, teachers, parents, parent councils, local residents, community councils, Council officers, elected members and other interested parties.

We want to make the school run safer by:

  • reducing the number of cars on the school run
  • helping people that drive make different travel choices
  • providing coordinated support to schools and pupils

This event is free to attend but booking is required! You can book online at:

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

Sustrans Scotland will be holding a wildflower meadow creation volunteer workday from 10:30am to 3:30pm on Monday 16 April just past the entrance to the National Cycle Network at the end of Greenlaw Road, Yoker G14 0PG.

The day will look at habitat management to encourage wildflowers. As part of the workday we will talk about why to create and manage wildflower meadows and how to go about it and what tools to use, as well as about tool care and health and safety. We will then spend the day removing invading scrub, targeted wildflower seed sowing and potentially wildflower plug planting.

Please bring:

  • Sturdy shoes, preferably boots
  • Clothes appropriate for the weather
  • (Some!) muscles and (lots of) enthusiasm
  • Packed lunch

Sustrans will provide tools; protective equipment, e.g. gloves; tea, coffee and biscuits.

Please remember that we encourage sustainable travel – if possible, please consider cycling or walking to us, or using public transport. The nearest train station is Yoker. Otherwise, please consider car sharing.

Plans for a new river crossing could be sunk after the West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) planning committee voted against the proposals for a new river crossing on the Clyde, even though the entire idea is being led by Renfrewshire Council, who put forward the original bid.

West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) said they were forced by the Scottish Government to take a position, even though they didn’t have all the facts.

The committee voted six to two against the bridge – the first public vote in any authority on the formal £78million plan.

Then last week Renfrewshire Council’s leadership board backed a proposal for the region-wide City Deal cabinet to revise their plans and drop the bridge in favour of two bridges over the White Cart.
