WH Malcolm planning application update: we have been in contact with the planning officer and no date has yet been set for when the application will go to the planning committee. In the meantime the campaign group have been keeping in regular contact and Scotstoun Community Council have taken the lead on submitting a petition to the Council about the air pollution on South Street.
We are recruiting board members and board advisors: Are you concerned about your local environment and your local community? Are you active in your community? If so then you may be the perfect candidate to join our voluntary Board of Directors! Our Board Members have overall responsibility for the governance and strategic direction of DRCET so why not come and join us!.
