Getting things done - Riverside Avenue

Four years ago, I highlighted complaints from constituents about the state of the ground on Dundee’s Technology Park at the entrance to the city, having received many concerns about the untidy state of the ground running along Riverside Avenue, just east of the Swallow Roundabout.   

As I said at the time, it is important that it is tidied as it is a prominent entrance to Dundee.   At the time, with assistance from City Council officers, the area was tidied.

Unfortunately, it was recently looking unsightly again – see photos from last week below :
The area above is not within the ownership of either the City Council or Scottish Enterprise (the latter own some other parts of the Techology Park grounds).   The City Council's Director of City Development advised me at the end of last week :

"I am seeking to establish who the owner/s of the area of land in question is and will seek to pursue the proper maintenance of this area with them."

However, meantime, I am extremely grateful to the council's Environment Department who undertook a one-off cut of the area to ensure it looks better meantime.
