Harkness Crescent Tenants & Residents Association
Minutes of Previous Meeting:
The Harkness Tenants and Residents Association is going from strength to strength with Isobel and Ann working hard with the group and ELC to address the issues raised by the local community.
The group are now in their 2nd year with an AGM to be held soon...….
Issues raised by the local community:
Monoblocking - still to be cleaned
School Children congregating – there are some young people gathering at the gable end. This is causing some problems. There are also people jumping over the fence into the back garden and causing grief to tenants, again particularly at the gable end. This has been reported on many occasions and K Black and the Antisocial Behaviour Team and Police are working together to address the issue.
- The group wondered about CCTV in the back garden?
- Can the direction of the camera be changed to look at Harkness Crescent?
- Can the gates be locked – 1 x key to lock all of the gates?
The above issues are being explored further by ELC staff. The group also would like to visit the contact centre at Macmerry in the future.......
Everyone agreed they really liked living in Harkness Crescent, where it was felt that there is a very supportive community spirit from the local tenants. ELTRP are supporting the group to take their issues forward where ELC are also being supportive and working together in finding ways to address the current issues.
