West End Local Community Planning Partnership

On Thursday of last week there was the quarterly meeting of the West End Local Community Planning Partnership. The meeting looked at a number of interesting items, not least the West End Community Plan. The local police also outlined the work which they are doing to try and catch the vandals who are smashing headstones in Balgay Cemetery. Tayside Fire and Rescue highlighted their success in bringing down the number of problems caused on Bonfire Night, this is a particularly good piece of partnership working where a variety of organisations work together to effectively deal with a problem.

The main item was probably another presentation on proposals for a park and ride scheme to the west of Dundee. I would be grateful to hear local people's views on whether there is a need for this and whether the proposed locations would be good or not.
