Fraser has been LibDem Councillor for the West End on Dundee City Council since 2001 and has topped the poll in all of the five council elections he has contested. He has served as the Council’s Education Convener, Finance Convener and Planning and Transport Convener. Fraser is a board member & Vice-Chair of Dundee Age Concern and a member of the college council of the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education.
When the recent demolition works took place in Blackness Road east of Ashbank Road, the contractor placed barriers round the site including across some of the car parking to the rear in Glenagnes Street.
As residents have pointed out to me, this removed around 9-10 parking spaces.
Whilst whilst placing the barriers across the spaces was no doubt necessary during demolition for safety reasons, now the site is cleared and it will be many months before construction of the new flats starts, there is no need to continue to remove the spaces.
I have said to Neighbourhood Services at the City Council that the barriers should go at the south edge of the spaces, making the spaces available again.
