“The area inspector for Seymour Street has checked the complaint about the flow of water at the Perth Road/Seymour Street junction and has been unable to ascertain the cause of the water overflowing the footway. Scottish Water is to be notified of the problem as the source may be from their apparatus.”
* I recently reported the damaged street sign atHillside Place. I have received the following feedback from the council :
“I will check this street name plate during this week and include any replacement in the next street name plate order. As yet I don’t have a timescale for completion of this but will aim to update you when this information is available.”
I am sure you are aware that we have lots of containers on Logie Avenue.
Blackness Road – Heating, Kitchen & Bathroom Replacement 2010
I can confirm that progress is being made towards starting work in January 2010.
I have made arrangements for a display container to be located at the garage site at the lower end of Logie Avenue on Tuesday 1st December between 3pm and 6pm for tenants to view kitchen/bathrooms and to discuss any particularly issues that they might have.
It was organised on a “drop in” without the need for an appointment and local councillors were invited to pop in. I had the pleasure of visiting this afternoon and it was good to see the different options available to tenants on show, with helpful staff from the housing project team and the contractors available to answer any questions.
Just received from the City Council – pleased to see this carriageway being improved :
Firstly, a useful meeting with the Chair of Logie Residents’ Association about safety concerns in Logie Avenue. A speed survery will now be undertaken – click on the headline above to view the full story in tonight’s Evening Telegraph.
Secondly, following concerns raised about the safety of pedestrians on Blackness Road (including Harris Academy pupils and visitors going to Royal Victoria Hospital), we met with residents who live close to the Kelso steps. The City Council had initially suggested a traffic island here to improve things for pedestrians crossing, but this had the disadvantage of significant loss of parking. An alternative suggestion by the Planning & Transportation Department includes a build-out at the bottom of the steps together with dropped kerbs and white lining (including “SLOW” markings) which has the advantages of creating a more calmed traffic environment and a shorter crossing length, without loss of parking. The unanimous view was that the latter option provided the best solution and it is anticipated that the necessary works to provide this will be undertaken during the current financial year.
It was my local party AGM last night and having got the real business out of the way promptly, we had an enjoyable social evening thereafter. A number of people commented how good the West End Christmas Lights Switch-On was and how nice the tree looks this year.
Can you update me on position re this?
Also, the phone box in Milnbank Road Dundee I reported to you weeks ago is STILL missing its door – can you advise ASAP.

Your e-mail appears to have been sent without checking the nature of my complaint. These were in my capacity as a City Councillor and pertain to vandalism/condition of several local phone boxes. They have nothing whatsoever to do with my personal phone account.
I am particularly concerned that months after raising complaints about a door missing off the phone box in Milnbank Road, Dundee, it remains unrepaired.
I’d be most grateful if you would advise of the position ASAP – many thanks.
Cllr Fraser Macpherson
Liberal Democrat Group Leader
Convener of the Finance Committee
