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.

bogus-callerThe Community Police report at the May Community Council meeting noted theft from a house in Lenzie involving bogus Water Board workmen.

Dont’ think you wouldn’t be caught out by these characters.  According to PC Ross Blain, they are very clever in terms of what they do.  These thefts are often targeted.  Best thing is to lock the door and check with the Police.

He emphasised the need for householders to look out for elderly or vulnerable neighbours and notify police if anything untoward is seen.  Police would rather check out a false alarm than be faced with a robbery or bogus work incident with the perpetrator long gone.

dog walk and buggyWhat 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 tom.gray@myphone.coop.

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.
