Further to our earlier discussions, I have a few updates for you on the Neighbourhood Recycling Point at High Mill Court & your request for an additional NRP at Osborne Place.
We are in the process of requesting permission to move the High Mill Court NRP (neighbourhood recycling point) from its existing position immediately outside the main doorway to an area at the top of the car park. Once we have received a response on this we will update you further.
With regard to the Osborne Place request, I have visited the area to assess its suitability for an NRP but have unfortunately found it unsuitable. The pavement areas are too narrow & space too limited to accommodate the NRP unit & there is insufficient space to allow vehicular access to empty the bins safely. While it is disappointing to be unable to provide bins at this particular location, the proposed move of the High Mill NRP will make it even more easily accessible to Osborne Place residents that it is at present & will therefore still allow them the opportunity to recycle their paper & glass.”
Subjects covered include school buses in the West End, Dundee Airport parking charges, West End Christmas Week, signs in Osborne Place and the boundary fencing round the former Homebase site on Riverside Drive.

The Community Council meets tomorrow at 7pm, at Logie St John’s (Cross) Church Hall in Shaftesbury Terrace.
A number of the residents at Pinegrove Gardens, the housing in part of Osborne Place, have complained to me about the lack of adequate signage to their properties – 10-20 evens ; 19-33 odds. As a result, there are problems with some deliveries to households.
Following my request, the City Council has agreed to improve the signage here and this will be installed in the near future.
