I am pleased to report good news I received today from the City Council's Housing Strategy Manager :
"Dear Cllr Macpherson
I refer to your previous correspondence on the poor state of the car park at Ancrum Place.
In order to address the problems residents are facing here a contribution from the risk management fund has been made to enable Housing to carry out repairs to the car park.
These repairs will now be instructed via City Engineers. I will keep you updated on the timescale for completion of the repairs."
As the car park and road area is in very poor condition, I have been concerned about this, particularly as it is used by elderly people who live in the nearby sheltered housing. I am therefore very pleased that the Housing Department has responded positively to the request that the car park area be improved.
