Following the fall of a significant amount of masonry from the tenement building at Clancy's Bar in Perth Road next to Westfield Avenue in the early hours of yesterday, I wrote yesterday to the City Council's Director of City Development regarding the matter as follows :
"Subject: Tenement masonry fall - block at Clancy's Bar Perth Road
I have already received concerns about the masonry that fell here earlier today. Thankfully it happened in the middle of the night but had it happened with pedestrians walking by, there could have been serious injury.
I appreciate these sort of properties are in private ownership but can I ask what measures are in place to ensure buildings are regularly inspected, even if from the road side, given the concerns received about public safety? Many thanks."
