Site visit Pentland

Tonight along with other West End councillors, council officers, police and fire and rescue officers I attended a site visit in the Pentland area regarding parking problems. The issue has been raised by Tayside Fire and Rescue who find it hard to get fire engines along Pentland Crescent and by the council's Waste Management Department who sometimes find it hard to get refuse lorries into some of the streets in this area. The estate was built at a time when most people didn't have cars and there is a severe lack of car parking spaces in the area. There is not a lot which can be done about this problem but officers from the City Development department will try to bring forward an effective cost efficient solution.
