* I had a positive meeting with the Chair, Chief Executive and Head of Pharmacy at NHS Tayside about thetransportation of drugs issue I have highlighted recently. The NHS representatives agreed to put the policy before the Board’s Improvement & Quality Committee for discussion and have also agreed to my request to retain records for longer.
It is expected that the works will be complete by early July.”
The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in South Tay Street from Nethergate to Tay Square (at No 18 South Tay Street).
Access to premises will be maintained where possible.
An alternative route will be available for Northbound traffic via Nethergate, West Marketgait, Hawkhill, Hunter Street and Old Hawkhill, and for Southbound traffic via Old Hawkhill, Hunter Street, Hawkhill, West Marketgait (southbound), Riverside Roundabout, West Marketgait (northbound) and Nethergate.
Please forward any comments you may have regarding this proposal to the Network Management Team, City Development Department, Tayside House, Crichton Street, Dundee, no later than five working days prior to the commencement date. If you have any queries please contact the City Council on 433168.
We are aiming to hold this week’s Christmas Week from 20th to 27th November – the launch on the 20th being a community fayre involving local community groups across the West End, with the Christmas lights switch on and children’s Christmas concert taking place on Wednesday 24th November – including a superb fireworks display and a carnival, hopefully on a site site at the Duncan of Jordanstone site (we are grateful for the support of the University of Dundee in relation to this). Celebrities, competitions, concerts – a great 10th Christmas anniversary in the West End – don’t miss it! For the first time, there will also be a lights switch-on event in West Port, to publicise the superb shops in West Port and South Tay Street, too.
Last night, as reported in today’s Courier, I chaired a great public meeting at Dundee West Church aimed at setting up a sports and community facility at Riverside, for the benefit of the West End community, together with a project to repaint and repair the Magdalen Green bandstand, last restored 20 years ago. The photo (below) was taken at the meeting.
If you are interested in hearing more about the project, please e-mail me at email@example.com – many thanks!
