Tidy up at former McCheyne Church on Perth Road

Almost exactly a year ago, I reported the tidy up of the grounds of the former McCheyne Church on Perth Road at the top of Shepherd’s Loan.

Over the past year, the grounds have become overgrown again (and rather badly at the front) and I have been in touch with the City Council’s Planning Enforcement Officer about this.   Following her contacting the owners, the grounds are now looking a lot better – see right.

Thought for the day :  In the ten years I have been on the City Council, residents have time and time again expressed their concern at the superb McCheyne Church building lying empty.   A sympathetic use really must be found for this imposing and historic church.
