Moray Place / The Railway Boundary

images(13)

The Strathbungo Society has been seeking to positively influence our biggest neighbour – Network Rail – for the past two years.  One issue has caused unnecessary uncertainty: what are the legal and ‘established’ boundaries along Moray Place?  Network Rail didn’t seem to know, nor did we.

So the Society’s Andrew Downie decided to do some research, looking at the original feu disposition between the original landowner and railway company as well as information from residents’ title deeds.

His resulting report is the definitive guide to the legal and ‘established’ boundaries that have developed along Moray Place over the past 100 years or so. Andrew’s report has been shared with Network Rail who accept it in full.  The report has aided the Society’s discussions with Network Rail as to where it can – and cannot – place any new fence.

It’s not the answer to everything about Network Rail’s proposed fence, but it has certainly shed much-needed light on the where the legal and established boundaries lie. If you want to read it yourself, please do – click on the link below.
