Glasgow City Council has put details of planning applications and building warrant applications since 2007 online. This includes all the paperwork that is usually found in applications, such as the forms, the plans, supporting documents from the applicant, comments from interested third parties such as neighbours, community councils, amenity societies and anyone else who might have an opinion on the application.
Because this information is available on the Council website, all old posts containing planning application notifications on the blog have been deleted. The blog can still be used to highlight local applications of interest to Strathbungo.
Planning applications can also be made online – see the Planning section of the Council website for details.
They are resurfacing Pollokshaws Road from Allison St to Minard Road from 9.30 today (Monday) until Friday the 2nd of March. Lane restrictions are in place and the works finish at 4pm every evening.
Since the October Strathbungo Society AGM when many of you indicated that the Bungo Blog could be improved, a few volunteers have offered to refresh the website. But rather than impose our own ideas we want to hear what residents of Strathbungo would like to see on the site.
The survey is just five quick questions which won’t take you five minutes to complete and we promise to post the results of the survey on Bungo Blog to show what everyone said.
We are doing our best to refresh the Bungo Blog so constructive criticisms and ideas are welcome in equal measure. But best of all of course is if you are interested in volunteering to write periodically for the Bungo Blog please do get in touch. Thanks very much in advance for completing the survey.

I’m thinking of trying to organise a Lights Out Night in Queens Park. This would be of the nature whereby as many people as possible come out to hang out together in the park on an evening with the dual themes of saving on home energy and generating a more positive impression of the park.
Local cafe’s providing food, some acoustic music/spoken word, bicylce powered cinema, lantern making that type of thing. I will be talking to the South Side Transition group and local cafe owners among others to see who is interested in making this happen. I wonder what the society would think about bringing to the table? One option mooted is to go for this on the 10th October to coincide with the International Day of Doing on Carbon Reduction.
Look forward to hearing any thoughts/ideas/input from anyone. Best Wishes
