    Hello, I would be grateful if you could advise me on who to conctact regarding the space at the top of Oban Drive, on the right after No.67 I think. It does not seem
    to belong to anyone who is interested in the upkeep and state of vegetation etc.
    Along with overgrown bushes and grasses which encourage the disposal of litter, there are a number of trees which are overhanging the pavement and the road parking areas. these are surely a Health and Safety issue with regard to the Glasgow Council being involved. I have been unable to find a specific link in the
    Glasgow.Gov. website. Thanking you.

    Hello Eddie, thanks for your message and sorry about the delayed response. We think it belongs to the adjacent house, actually Fergus Drive. Oban Drive ends at its junction with Fergus. (Someone had asked at one of the meetings if we could plant it.) Will check at our next meeting (7 May).

    Hello, I’m writing on behalf of my Neighbour at 2 Oban Drive and myself 4 Oban Drive regards the new parking plan for North Kelvinside.
    After studying the plans in more detail we’ve noticed that we have a protected zig zag zone directly outside our houses.
    We were wondering whether:
    This was necessary
    Why we seem to be the only residents in this new parking plan that haven’t the option of parking outside our property.

    Thanks for your message. We will try to bring this up at our meeting on 5 November but you may be best to feedback your view to the folk in charge:

  • Benjamin Blain

    Hello! I would like to get involved in a community clean-up. When is the next one planned for?

    (Also, I’d really like to help out with a community clean up of Oban Lane, if possible!)

  • NKCC Admin

    Hi, thanks a lot for getting in touch! We don’t have a date for the next clean-up but will probably arrange one at our next meeting (Tues 5th Sept – watch this space for details or sign up for our newsletter if you’re not already on our mailing list). Oban Lane was included in the last one we did so we may well choose somewhere else next time. But we do have equipment you are welcome to use if you would like to do something independently, and if you arrange a date we will help publicise it.
