With planning permission in place we reviewed our budget in the light of rapidly increasing costs. The full extent of works is beyond our available funds, and so we have elected to repair the Vennard Gardens lane entrance at Moray Place, and the central section of the Marywood & Queen Square lane that is most prone to flooding. The Vennard Gardens lane entrance at Pollokshaws Road is beyond our budget unless further funds become available.
That said, as soon as we agreed to proceed, our contractor, Richard Birch Gardens, got to work. They have already cleared blocked gulleys and have commenced work in Vennard Gardens. Access to the lane here will be impossible for the next week or so. Once this is complete, work will begin in the other lane, probably week commencing May 29th.
Work should be complete before Bungo in the Back Lanes.
