16/3/17 – February minutes posted;
Welcome to the Lenzie Community Council website. The aim of this site is to provide an information channel between the Council and the community. The event calendar will tell you of upcoming events (highlighted in grey) including monthly meetings. The agenda for each meeting will be posted on the respective event page, just before the meeting. You can find agreed Council Minutes under ‘Council Business’. Topics of special or current interest are covered in individual posts as they arise. The Links page takes you to external websites where there are items of interest. You can send us comments using the ‘contact us’ form. And, finally, go to the ‘archive’ (under Event Calendar) to check older items that have been displaced by newer posts.
This project has reached the next stage where feedback from the Launch event in Sept. 2016 and the Workshop in Nov 2016 has been used to form working proposals for the Heath/Garngaber and Kirkintilloch Road junction, the Public Space at Queen’s Buildings on Kirkintilloch Road and the Station Forecourt on the north side of the railway.
There are several places where you can view these proposals and in some cases leave your comments – Community Council Noticeboard outside the former RBS Branch, in Lenzie Library and on the project interactive website. Click the ‘View Lenzie proposals’ and then the ‘latest news’ tab on the Lenzie Commonplace website to see up to date info.
What are your favourite paths in and around Lenzie?
Lenzie Community Council, U3A and Strathkelvin Ramblers have combined forces to ask you – what are your favourite walking, cycling or horse riding routes around Lenzie?
This information will help us to prioritise routes for development and possibly produce a guide to find new places to explore locally. Particularly, we are keen to get news on paths that are suitable for wheelchair users, buggy pushers, cyclists and horse riders. We are thinking especially of paths where you don’t need to get in a car first but can step out of your back door and set off.
Please fill in the questionnaire form and if you have several ‘favourites’, feel free to fill in more than one form. Then send it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Community Council in East Dunbartonshire Council area has recently been issued with an official map of its area and you can view the Lenzie CC map on a bigger scale by clicking Lenzie CC 2015map. The boundaries of adjacent Community Councils can be found on the EDC website under ‘Maps – Planning’ and by ticking the ‘Community Council Areas’ box.
You may be surprised to find that the Lenzie area does not include any part of the new Woodilee Village. Lenzie CC has for some time been discussing this with neighbouring Waterside CC and East Dunbartonshire Council. What has been agreed is that Lenzie CC will represent residents in the area of the former Hospital, pending revision of Community Council areas by East Dunbartonshire Council before the next Community Council elections in 2017.
The agreement is based on the following alterations to the Lenzie CC map – starting at the Garngaber/Initiative Road traffic lights; the Waterside/Kirkintilloch boundary is followed north-east to its intersection with Calfmuir Road; then Calfmuir Road is followed southwards to its intersection with the current boundary shown on the Lenzie map. This alteration is consistent with access routes and school catchment areas.
