ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The Annual General Meeting of the Residents' Association will take place in Netherlee Pavilion on Monday 24th April 2017.
Guest Speaker - Tommy Docherty, presenting Eric Watt's Glasgow - Faces & Places (Photos of Glasgow from the 1960s to the 1980s)
With our Residents’ Association close to 90 years old, it is a good time to reflect on the importance of local representation in ensuring our neighbourhood retains its essential charm, qualities and attractions for all of our residents. The Muirend and Stamperland Community Council was disbanded in 2015, and has failed to be resurrected due to lack of nominations. Our council Ward, Netherlee, Muirend and Stamperland, has been recently expanded by the Boundaries Commission to include Busby, increasing the width of our councillors’ responsibilities and focus. The Residents’ Association remains entirely focussed on local issues, giving residents a forum to report concerns or to develop ideas and initiatives to improve the area and its facilities. The Association is only as strong as its membership, so do please take the time to read our Newsletter, and do consider coming along to the AGM. We also meet regularly in the library at Netherlee Pavilion, 7.30pm on the 3rd Monday of every month except July, August & December. Please feel free to come along!
Although our area remains a safe, convenient and attractive place in which to live, we have dealt with a number of matters over the last 12 months. These have included: conclusion and implementation of the local parking review; implementation of new recycling and refuse collection arrangements; consultation on the new Local Plan; advising residents on transport arrangements for the new medical centre.
We are fortunate to have our own dedicated web site. Please feel free to visit on: http://www.netherlee.org.uk
We are happy to include news items, articles or add links for events, organisations or other local interests, so please get in touch if you would like further information.
Ralph Robertson will be a familiar figure to many, having served as an independent councillor for the past 8 years. The Residents’ Association has, for many years, supported independent, non-political representation for the area on the council. From the 1960s, the Association sponsored its own candidate, and in later years, following legislative change, supported an independent candidate. In recent years this role has been ably fulfilled by Ralph, who has been active and thorough in assisting the Association in addition to assisting individual residents with their concerns and queries. The Committee is grateful to Ralph for his support over the years and wishes him luck in seeking re-election on 4th May. The Residents’ Association looks forward to addressing the interests and concerns of our community through a continuing and reciprocal non-partisan relationship with our elected representative.
