We have learnt from residents in the last few days that Mount Florida Bowling Club is facing an imminent threat of closure due to ‘lack of members’.
Measures to improve surface water drainage were given planning permission. The measures include ‘rain gardens’ on the roadside on Aikenhead Road and Kings Park Avenue. See our previous post on this topic here. As of July 2018, it was anticipated that work would start January 2019.
Here we pass on answers to issues raised by MoFloCoCo, received from a GCC Development and Regeneration Services official in July 2018.
A southside community project to create a new civic space, at the gateway to Hampden, has taken a big step forward thanks to securing two new pots of money.
A letter signed by businesses in Mount Florida has underlined the hammer blow that would be dealt to local economy if the SFA decides to leave Hampden for Murrayfield.
The SFA will soon hear presentations from the Hampden Park Limited and Scottish Rugby Union ahead of its decision whether to keep Scottish football at Hampden or move it to Murrayfield. We understand that if the SFA leaves, the stadium will likely close as Queens Park would not be able to afford the upkeep.
MoFloCoCo recently became of GCC’s application for planning permission to build ‘rain gardens’ and a storm water storage basin on Aikenhead Road. The period for public responses has closed. We believe a great many people are still unaware of the plans so we want to share the information we have gathered. There is still time to provide input on details such as whether the rain gardens should be planted with trees or shrubs.
With support from Sustrans and Awards for All, MoFloCoCo is working on developing the Letherby Triangle in the heart of Mount Florida. We have undertaken extensive consultation work, involving hundreds of local residents to determine the best option for the site.
Many residents have objected to the proposed development at Asda Toryglen. Many people objected the developer has avoided community consultation and scrutiny, or had concerns about the impact on local businesses in Mount Florida, litter, traffic and public health impacts. If you share these concerns please urgently contact your ward councillors to tell them. The applications are likely to go to Committee for approval next Tuesday 7th February.
MoFloCoCo is delighted to publish the consultation report for the redevelopment of Letherby Triangle. This is the outcome of the process of consultation involving hundreds of local people, carried out earlier this year on our behalf by the consultancy erz.
