Plans to build 90 homes in Neilston given the green light
4 hrs ago

By William Brown
Reporter

CONTROVERSIAL plans to build 90 homes in Neilston have been given the green light.

More than 1,000 objections were submitted in a bid to halt proposals by Dawn Homes for the new development on land near Kirkton Road.

Neighbours insisted it would lead to extra noise, busier roads and a loss of green space.

However, planning officials at East Renfrewshire Council had recommended approval – and councillors rubber-stamped the application at a meeting held yesterday afternoon.

Dawn Homes has said it aims to start work at the site "in the coming months."

Managing director Martin Egan told the Barrhead News: “We’re really pleased our plans for 90 new homes, including 24 affordable, just off Kirkton Road have been approved.

“Neilston is a great village, with playing fields, a train station, local schools and variety of amenities, including a community centre, library, leisure centre and shops.

"Our development will bring highly energy efficient three and four-bedroom new-build homes to the area, with play areas for children.

"There will be ample open space and woodland, ideal for taking the dog and to encourage bio-diversity, with walking and cycle routes linking throughout the development to the wider community for all to enjoy.”

The application had gone before East Renfrewshire’s planning committee in April, with councillors deciding to visit the site before coming to a decision.

However, officials had said the plans could be approved subject to a legal agreement relating to the delivery of 24 homes for social rent and payment of a developer contribution.

They pointed out that the site had been identified for residential use in the local development plan.

Residents in Neilston have said they fear there is a lack of infrastructure, such as schools and shops, to support new homes and the development will impact on privacy, as well as the environment.

A noise assessment found that houses closest to the railway line will experience levels at night which are “likely to cause a waking event” and the council’s environmental health team said the proposals do not meet World Health Organisation standards.

But a report to councillors stated: “Given the local circumstances, it is considered that whilst there may be some adverse impact on the amenity of future residents at night time, it is not significantly different from the rest of the urban area, and therefore it would be unreasonable to refuse the application on these grounds alone.”

Planners also said the proposals had “undergone extensive revisions” to meet the local development plan and exceeded the affordable housing requirements.

They added: “Through development contributions, it will contribute to local services and community facilities to serve the existing and growing community.”]]>

Council chiefs to review decision to cut Isobel Mair summer school
7 hrs ago
By Norman Silvester
Reporter

Council chiefs are to review their decision to cut a summer school for children with complex needs - following a series of meetings with angry parents.

Last week the Barrhead News revealed how two weeks of vital holiday activities at Isobel Mair School in Newton Mearns had been axed.

In the past East Renfrewshire Council has extended the school year at Isobel Mair for two weeks into July to provide for up to 150 pupils, giving parents some much needed respite.

But the number of children being offered summer places has been reduced to just 37, over fewer days, as part of a cost-cutting exercise to save £62,000.

Last week parents had a series of crisis meeting with councillors and council officials.

They demanded that the extended school year be reinstated and the savings found from elsewhere.

Councillors said they would consider their request and look at what alternatives could be provided.

The biggest meeting was last Tuesday evening when more than 60 parents and councillors took part.

Parents asked why a £200,000 underspend from the the education budget was used to fund a £1.9 million sports facility at nearby Mearns Castle High and not used to offset the cuts at Isobel Mair.

But the council insisted that the cash was already committed to the Mearns Castle project and could not be reallocated.

A petition calling for the decision to be reversed has already attracted more than 4,000 signatures.

Barrhead woman Selina Yau, 30, who is a carer for her 16-year-old brother, said the annual two-week programme gave parents and carers a much-needed summer break.

Selina, who launched the petition, added: “It was good to hear some councillors say that the budget cut was a mistake and that they were looking at a solution.

“But [it was] disappointing to know that they voted this through when there aren’t any alternatives in place for pupils like my brother.

“It is still very upsetting to know that we are facing a huge, long summer without any support.

“It has not been very well thought out and we need a solution fast.”

Tracey Campbell, co-chair of Isobel Mair Parent Council, commented: “The officials agreed that they would look at other council budgets to see if money for Isobel Mair could be found.

“We were told that the existing extended school year service could be redesigned if the parents were prepared to work with them which we are.

“I don’t know if they will be able to do anything this year.

“However we would like to see the services redesigned for next year as they were, if not better.”

An East Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “We are focussed on providing support for as many children as possible in the upcoming summer holiday period.

“Following positive discussions with the parent council, we are confident that a range of options can be provided to parents next week, which will include working with a number of partners.

“In the longer term, any potential change to the arrangements now in place would be a matter for councillors to consider and decide.”]]>

I have to say I am tired of political tribalism that divides us.
If I see something our local Tory MSP or our SNP MP is doing that needs to be supported then I'll like it and comment accordingly.
It does not make me a Tory or an SNP supporter.
It's fine to like something and to support something our elected representatives are doing publicly.
The amount of times I do this and I get really abusive messages is quite alarming as to how much further some have to travel.
Some even say because I'm independent that I should not show any type of support for anything.
It's bonkers.


Comments -

Cllr David Macdonald - An Independent voice for people.
Stevie Greer We've been around the world and back on this Stevie.
Did the SNP have the ability to form a minority?
No.
Did the Tories?
No.
They both would have fallen with 6 and 5 respectively because they are diametrically opposed and Labour is not to each of them.
The Labour group were restricted in forming coalitions with either the Tories or the SNP.
We both know the SNP and the Tories would have never created a coalition regardless of the fact that the SNP executive committee forbid it.
What other option was there?
If the independents had not supported the only group able to form a minority then the council would have been at a complete stalemate.
Labour are in now with just one independent as I've now decided to go back to the ranks of opposition.
I am absolutely fine with that.
Now I can vote freely and they won't be guaranteed of my support on every issue..
I'll support them on issues I can and not on issues I can't.
But the the most important thing is there is an administration instead of a continuous period of stalemate.
I think if you take the time to realise that there was absolutely no other option but this to form a minority government you will see what everybody was up against. I don't control what barriers other parties put in front of themselves to work with others.
I can only try to assist in helping to form a government.
I've done that.
Politics is cyclical.
Political composition on councils isn't guaranteed forever.
Who knows?
Anas Sarwar may change his mind and then the SNP and Labour may be back forming an administration.
Or perhaps Labour may form one with the Tories.
It's not for me to decide.
All I have to do is to look at each issue that is put in front of me to vote on and to vote based on what I think is best for the people of my ward.
Local politics is not straightforward or easy.
Sometimes it takes making very long thought out decisions that compromises electoral safety for an elected member.
Not everybody understands the limit to the options that there were on the table.

Cllr David Macdonald - An Independent voice for people.
Stevie Greer I didn't say anybody that disagreed with me was bonkers.
I said it was bonkers to expect me not be able to support anything on the basis I was an independent.
Again.
The Labour group were not allowed by their executive committee to form any coalition with either the SNP or the Tories.
I cannot control the directives of a political party. .
If you have suggestions for alternatives then I would say put them to the leadership of the Labour group.
By definition a coalition would become such when Convenerships (cabinet) were shared between various political parties.
Anything outside of Convenership plus leader is not a cabinet member.
For example a chair of a quasi judicial committee such as Licensing or a role like Deputy Provost or Provost.
I made no agreement with the Conservatives.
They sit in opposition.
The only agreement I formed was with the leadership of the Labour group.
I was offered the position of Convener for Health and Social care, a position I have since declined.
I sit solely as an Independent member not as part of the administration.
I am quite happy with continuing to serve my ward only.
It's what I enjoy doing the most. The constituency work is what I feel I am best at. I'll continue to do the casework for the people of my area and be as helpful as I can offering advice on a range of issues.
I know you are upset that the SNP were not able to form a coalition.
I can totally understand why you are upset but please be assured it was down to Labour restricting their local group from forming anything resembling a formal coalition. That has nothing to do with me.

East Renfrewshire: £425k wasted on failed cycle scheme


8th June
By Norman Silvester
Reporter


A CONTROVERSIAL cycle lane scheme cost the taxpayer more than £425,000 it has been revealed.

The project by East Renfrewshire Council involved installing hundreds of black and white bollards on Ayr Road and Fenwick Road last year.

However, the bollards were ripped out in April following a vocal campaign of opposition from angry local residents.

Figures obtained under Freedom of Information show that the cost to date of the installation, repair and maintenance of the bollards including road markings is £428,054.

On Ayr Road alone the overall bill was £329,377 including the hire of a road sweeper for £17,200.

Hundreds of cones were placed on a two mile stretch between Giffnock and Newton Mearns to create segregated cycle lanes going in either direction.

In March, we revealed how council chiefs did a U-turn following a campaign by local residents who formed the Action Against East Renfrewshire Bollards group.

Founder member Karen Flo also set up a petition which attracted more than 2,600 signatures of opposition.

She said of the FOI figures: “They show that the cycle lane scheme was a complete waste of money with no justification.

“For the final total to be so high is ridiculous with so many other public services being cut elsewhere.

“There was no evidence that the number of cyclists increased or were better provided for when the bollards were put in place.

“It was not efficient and best value for taxpayers money.

“There has been a huge improvement for both cyclists and motorists since the bollards were moved.

“We have cyclists in our group who are very happy that they have gone now.”

Protestors claimed the bollards created a hazard for both drivers and cyclists particularly when blown out by bad weather.

They also said the bollards were an eyesore and left essential visitors like care workers with nowhere to stop or park safely.

However supporters said the segregated cycle lane provided much needed spaces for people to walk and cycle safely during the pandemic.

An East Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “The temporary protected cycle lanes on Fenwick Road and Ayr Road were delivered with funding made available by the Scottish Government via the Sustrans ‘Spaces for People’ programme.

“This funding was specifically made available to support temporary infrastructure in response to Covid.

“This aimed to protect public health and support sustainable modes of transport whilst in recovery.”]]>
