Hawthorn Housing Cooperative agrees estate action plan
A number of issues including blocked drains and faulty streetlights were identified that have been passed on to Glasgow City Council as it is their responsibility.
The Cooperative agreed a programme of work for the caretaking team. The aim is that all the grass is neat and tidy, the closes have been deep cleaned, the area clear of litter and the railings painted by the end of March next year.
It has also agreed a few ‘special’ projects to improve the area including removing the trees in Fruin Street, agreeing with tenants improvements to the ‘inshots’ between the blocks in Finlas Street to prevent dumping and exploring the possibility of installing planters at various locations around the estate.
Colin Turnbull, director, said: “We want to get to the situation where anyone who visits the area is struck by how well the area is maintained and tenants are proud of how good the area looks. That is why we thought it was important that tenants had a say in what the priorities are and how the estate budget is spent. I really hope that tenants can see a noticeable improvement by Spring next year.”
