DIY Streets

At the end of October, thirty residents from Firshill Rd and Passhouses Rd met at Firshill School hall to consider the “DIY streets” idea.

There were lots of ideas – like introducing recycling banks to prevent the car sale site, having a temporary trial road closure, removing/reducing the lime trees, talking with the police and the youth workers about some nuisance behaviour – and dealing with the speeding cars!

One woman said “We want to make the road what we want, not what we need.”

Everyone’s now being asked questions about their use of the streets. At the next meeting, it’s going to be working with Sustrans’ designer and Council staff to see what things might start to look at.
