28.10.19 The path has now re-opened but care required as the surface is unfinished.

Gallolee Path Update

  • admins 

26.10.19 The path should re-open Monday 28th. Unforeseen additional work has lead to a slight delay in completion of the drainage works.

Toyota / DVLA

  • admins 

23.10.19 We have now received information from the DVLA regarding this vehicle. It will be discussed at the next committee meeting. (Date to be confirmed).

Gallolee Path

Gallolee path is closed. You will need to divert via Redford Road or via the Care Home and down through the woods.

Abandoned Toyota

  • admins 

18.10.19 Still nothing back from the DVLA. We may have to consider our options on what to do with this vehicle. It is really becoming a bit of an eyesore with flat tyres etc.

Grass Cutting.

  • admins 

12.10.19 The last cut of the year should take place today Saturday 12.10.19. This will be the fourteen cut with a total cost for the year of £2800.
51 houses contributed £60 each (Total £3060). Unfortunately this has left very little towards general maintenance. A review of the Garden Maintenance Fee will be made prior to next year’s AGM which hopefully will be held in Mid March.

Gallolee Path. (Between 18 & 19 Dreghorn Park.)

  • admins 

10.10.19 The council have put up notices saying work will be carried out on the path from Monday 21.10.19 to Friday 25.10.19.
The notice states that pedestrian flow will be maintained but given the narrow nature of the path this does seem somewhat unlikely. Be prepared to take an alternative route via Redford Road or via the Care Home and down through the Redford Woods.

Trees

07.10.19 Work commenced 0830hrs to remove the Leylandii and dead Cherry trees.

Tree Removal – (Updated… please read full post).

  • admins 

The tree cutting contractor has confirmed a date of 07.10.19 (this coming Monday) to remove the Leylandii conifers in the main grassed area and the dead Cherry trees at the East end of the street. It would be appreciated if residents would move any vehicles parked close to the trees as no responsibility will be taken by the contractor or DPRA if the vehicles are not removed. The majority of foliage and small branches will be chipped and removed from site but logs will be left on site and can be obtained by residents for a small donation to the Garden Maintenance Fund.
Suitable replacements for the Cherry trees is presently on the committee agenda.

We have had a couple queries regarding maintenance etc. For avoidance of doubt, as per the deed of conditions for all properties in Dreghorn Park, each and every owner of property in Dreghorn Park is legally obliged to contribute to the maintenance and upkeep of the common garden and car-park areas irrespective of whether they use these areas or not.
