Logie Gardens – an update

Back in July, I reported that residents in Logie Gardens had complained to me about the state of part of the ground on the street’s south side adjacent to Pine Court’s car park.
 
It was overgrown and unsightly, but there was some doubt as to ownership.    After checking ownership records, the City Council was able to advise me that the parcel of overgrown ground was sold to the former Cleghorn Housing Association in 1991.   
 
I therefore asked Home Scotland (who took over from Cleghorn some years ago) if the area could be tidied and this has now been carried out – see below :

Happy Birthday Pine Court!

Earlier this afternoon, I was delighted to attend the start of today’s celebrations of the 20th Anniversary of the opening of Pine Court in Logie Gardens.
 
As Karen Wolstencroft, Home Scotland’s Customer Services Manager, said in her address to the large group of residents, family members and guests present, Pine Court has been a great success over the past twenty years in providing a quality sheltered housing community for both the Chinese and Scottish folk who live there.
 
Here’s some photos from today’s celebrations:

Getting things done – Logie Gardens

Residents in Logie Gardens have complained to me about the state of part of the ground on the street’s south side adjacent to Pine Court’s car park.
 
As you can see below, its overgrown and unsightly, but there was some doubt as to ownership.    The non-Home Scotland housing close by to the west was built by Glenagnes Developments Limited, the adjacent roadway is adopted by the City Council and the remainder of the area is owned by Home Scotland.
The City Council kindly ascertained for me that the parcel of overgrown ground was sold to the former Cleghorn Housing Association in 1991.   
 
Cleghorn is now part of the Home Scotland group and the Customer Services Manager at Home Scotland has now advised me that, over the next few weeks, the housing association will have the area tidied and added thereafter maintained on an on-going basis.
