Police no one in attendance, but as we arranged this meeting a week later than usual, they had unfortunately attended the previous week. Apology was sent.

Ward Cllrs – no one present


HMO’s & TRO’s  – nil.

Licencing: Barbie Lyon raised the late opening application by Chicken Crew, 25 Dalry Rd who want to have a 2am late opening approved. Presently they close at 11 pm. This take away/sit in business is situated below residential properties. This would cause obvious noise and litter problems in the area where anti social behaviour has been problematic at times.  Objections have to be made to the licencing department by 16th May.  Petitions are not accepted. Personally written and signed letters of objections can be sent or scanned and emailed to the department


SWNP dates to follow.

G in the Park

Friends of Westfield Court Park hope to have an event, dates to be arranged.

Garvald leaflet: ‘The Pink Ladies’ fun event at Redhall Walled Garden 20th May
