News, Local Events

Letter from Chairman To All:

 One of the outcomes from the recent planning decision on the Scotstoun Stadium increase in seating capacity was a recommendation from the Traffic consultant that ‘no waiting’ markings should be added to various ‘sensitive’ parts of nearby roads in South Jordanhill. Details of the proposals have now appeared and are attached to this email. Please note that the proposals in no way add up to our proposed PTRO and, in my view , will do little to improve traffic congestion on Warriors’ match days. However there could be a small positive effect for the locality in general. Representations to ‘SafeParking’ are invited from any interested parties to be received by Monday 16th April and I would encourage any of you who feel strongly (in either direction) to do this. JCC will also make a representation as an interested party. Please let me have your responses/opinions for the latter by Monday 9th April at the latest. I will then draft a representation on JCC’s behalf.


Notice of Proposals from LES

Public Meeting 

Sunday 25th. March 2018 at 2pm Jordanhill Parish Church

Message from Police Scotland

The Jordanhill area still appears to be targeted by house breakers and other suspicious persons. We are asked by the local Police to be vigilant and to please report any suspicious events or persons using 101, or 999 telephone numbers. Even if it turns out subsequently to have been a false alarm. Our area is still the target for vandals and anti-social behaviour, particularly the Jordanhill Campus area. There should be extra Police activity in evidence over the coming weeks.

Police Warning

As some of you will know to your cost, there has been a spate of thefts from houses and garages in Jordanhill. Our Police Scotland contacts emphasise the need for vigilance in noting suspicious events and particularly for ensuring security of your premises. Thefts from garages are a particular issue. We are warned also about fraud involving bogus workers who quote for work to be done, accept payment then disappear. In some cases evidently ‘white vans’ have been implicated. Be on your guard! Jordanhill receives regular police patrols, although they cannot be everywhere all the time. Police Scotland emphasis the usefulness of 101 calls, despite scepticism from some residents.

Scottish Government Equity Scheme

I am writing in connection with the launch of the Equity Loan Scheme on 6th January which aims to improve the energy efficiency of existing homes. The HEEPS: Equity Loan Scheme is a Scottish Government loan to help owner occupiers and private landlords improve the energy efficiency of their homes and carry out repairs to the fabric of the building. Although the loan is secured against the property, there are no ongoing repayments and the loan will generally only be repaid when the property is sold or upon the death of the last applicant. Energy Saving Trust are partnering with Glasgow Care and Repair to deliver the scheme. Care and Repair offers independent advice and assistance to help elderly and disabled homeowners repair, improve or adapt their homes so that they can live in comfort and safety in their own community. For the Equity Loan Scheme, we will liaise with all applicants and clients can access our network of approved contractors, and we will provide an enhanced level of support to elderly and vulnerable customers. Without going into all of the elements of the scheme in this email, you can access the Energy Saving Trust website via the following link-: I would be obliged if you could please make your community aware of the scheme and if they wish to discuss any aspect of the scheme further, or you wish me to attend one of your meetings, then please can contact me at this office.
