Getting things done – Ninewells Village

I have received residents’ complaints about the deteriorated state of the paths network within the Ninewells Village residential area within the hospital grounds.
 
In particular, the paths running up Lister Court are in poor shape – see right :
 
I raised this with Netlatch (who have responsibility for maintenance within the Ninewells Village grounds) seeking improvements and I am grateful for their prompt response confirming this will be done.
