Very glad to inform all potential users of the ATM at the former Royal Bank of Scotland Branch in Lenzie that, as of yesterday, (17th January) the ATM appears to be working once more.

We don’t know which of the many buttons that were pressed had the desired effect, but we hope that fault rectification is now permanent.

A Hotel for Lenzie

garn1The latest Planning proposal for the piece of ground alongside Woodilee Road at the foot of Garngaber Avenue is for a 28-bedroom hotel. You may remember that the previous proposal was for 8/9 houses and this was turned down on appeal to the Reporter, mostly on the grounds of possible damage to the health of protected trees.
A complicating factor was that the developer had jumped the gun somewhat and cut down a large number of not-protected trees which you can see on the right of the adjacent picture. Because these trees were removed without obtaining a licence, the Forestry Commission has imposed a requirement on the developer that these trees be replaced, albeit not in the same positions as original.
If you have views on this Proposal, you may be interested in the objections which Lenzie Community Council have now submitted with respect to this application.  Click on Hotel Application TP_ED_17_0885

DSC05169Fears that the adverse weather would reduce the number of entries were unfounded.  There was a record turnout of 373 entrants, although not all finished. Last minute removal of a rotten tree meant that the route could go ahead as planned

Kirkintilloch Olympians worked their magic as usual in logging the times despite freezing fingers and the results were processed after the event.  To find out where you finished, click on Lenzie Jog 2018 prov results

SDLEN_public space_resizedThe latest proposals, developed after extensive local engagement and feedback from the March public event, will be showcased at Lenzie Old Parish Church Hall on 13th July between 3 pm and 7 pm.  Members of the project team will be on hand to discuss the ideas and you can leave feedback.

Revised plans will also be available to view from 6th July on the project website https://lenzieproposals.commonplace.is/.

The adapted plans will still improve access to the Station and shops for people on foot or on cycles, but also account for local concerns about managing traffic movements.

Lenzie Map

lenziemapEvery 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.
