Getting things done - Pentland area #dundeewestend

We have recently had numerous complaints about environment management in the Pentland area including the overgrown mess near the bottom of Saggar Street and along Pentland Avenue, extent of weeds in part of Colinton Place and overgrown bushes at some of the steps in the area, making handrails unable to be accessed.

Our local environment manager has responded helpfully as follows :

"We will certainly tackle the weed control issues as indicated.

Unfortunately, our specific machine that cuts the grass embankment Pentland Avenue has developed a fault. We are currently trying to have this machine repaired by the supplier/manufacturer. We are exploring potential alternatives until our specialised machine is returned.

We will tackle the areas where growth is affecting the handrails and partially obstructing the footpath."
