Pennycook Lane Latest

Back on 19th September, I reported that the City Council had agreed to trim overgrown shrubbery and trees in Pennycook Lane, following my raising residents' complaints about this with the Council. Click on the headline above or go to http://tinyurl.com/pennycook to read the earlier article.

An officer in the Waste Management Department has now advised me :

"My colleagues in Contract Services have received the work order from City Development but have advised that the Pennycook Lane car park will need to be closed to the public for a full day in order to carry out the required works on the tree root & overhanging greenery."

Given that the car park is extremely busy, particularly once Blackness Primary School is open again after the autumn holiday, I have suggested that a one day car park closure should be on a Sunday, easily the quietest day. That said, it will be good to see the shrubbery tidied.
