Further to the ongoing Network Rail saga, Network Rail has contacted The Strathbungo Society with revised plans to erect a boundary fence along the length of Moray Place. In response to sustained community pressure from Strathbungo – and particularly Moray Place – residents, Network Rail seem to have reconsidered their plans in a number of regards, which is welcome.
The Society has been pressing Network Rail to meet with The Strathbungo Society and local elected representatives – at the City Chambers – to discuss their proposals in full. All local elected representatives – councillors, MSP and MP – have backed the Society’s position and Network Rail have committed to meet soon. Cllr Norman Macleod has offered to arrange the meeting, which we hope will be held later in August or early September 2016.
We’ll aim to keep you posted, and the Society will push for an community-based consultation once Network Rail’s wider plans are known – and agreed.
Chair, The Strathbungo Society
