Community BBQ

I had the pleasure yesterday of calling by the community barbeque in Kelso Street organised by the residents of Kelso Street, Kelso Place and Jedburgh Road and was most grateful for the kind invitation.

It was another great example of community spirit in the West End so many thanks to Sarah and her neighbours who organised the day!

Kelso Street, Kelso Place, Jedburgh Road BBQ

I had a thoroughly enjoyable time yesterday at the community barbeque in Kelso Street and on the Elliot Road playing fields (with the council’s permission) organised by the residents of Kelso Street, Kelso Place and Jedburgh Road and was very grateful for the kind invitation.

It was a great example of community spirit and residents getting together so many thanks to Sarah and the other organisers!

Royal Wedding street party

Some weeks ago, a resident in the Kelso Street/Kelso Place area contacted me about how to go about getting the City Council to agree to a temporary road closure to allow the residents there to have a Royal Wedding street party.   City Council officers have kindly co-operated with this request.   Yesterday, the temporary traffic order was published by the City Council – its for a date shortly after the actual wedding date to ensure that it is on a day when as many local residents as possible can participate.

THE ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT 1984 – SECTION 14(1)

THE DUNDEE CITY COUNCIL AS TRAFFIC AUTHORITY being satisfied that traffic on the road should be prohibited by reason of a royal wedding street party being held HEREBY PROHIBIT the driving of any vehicle in Kelso Street/Kelso Place, Dundee.

This notice comes into effect on Saturday 7 May 2011 for 1 day.

Pedestrian thoroughfare will be maintained.

No diversion routes are available and access to emergency vehicles will be maintained if necessary.
