by Ian Yuill on 6 July, 2017

I have urged the police to take action to tackle speeding on the section of Morningside Road currently without speed cushions. I did this after being contacted by a number of people about some drivers speeding on this stretch of road. These speed cushions have been missing since the middle part of Morningside Road was resurfaced […]

The error happened after staff at Mannofield’s Tesco store reported an attempted break in. The police control room sent police officers to Great Western Road in Glasgow when […]

After being contacted by residents, I have once again urged the Chief Executive of Scottish Government agency Transport Scotland to take action to get the many bare and churned up areas on the grass verges of South Anderson Drive and Anderson Drive levelled and re-seeded or re-turfed.

Mannofield shops – what’s going on?

by Ian Yuill on 5 March, 2017

I have been contacted by a number of residents over the last few weeks asking what is happening at the Mannofield shops and why some of the shops are closing. Some people also asked whether there were any plans to replace the shops with flats. The renewal of leases for the shops is obviously a […]

by Ian Yuill on 5 February, 2017

I am now getting more complaints from residents about dog fouling in our area. Problem areas recently highlighted to me have included Airyhall, around Broomhill School, Ruthrieston, the footpath on the north bank of the River Dee and around Inchbrae Drive. Whenever a problem is reported to me I ask council staff to clear the mess. […]
