An inaugural meeting to form a residents’ group for Queenspark was well attended and in the coming weeks a committee is expected to be appointed.

Organiser Morag Anderson said 11 people were present with apologies from several others who hope to attend the next meeting and offer their support on August 11 at 7pm in the Army Cadet Hall, in John Street.

“It was a very positive meeting and it was chaired by Catriona Sutherland, Highland Council’s tenant participation officer, who gave an update on the points raised at the recent walkabout with Highland Council housing staff,” she said.

“She also shared the action plan that gives the detail of what’s happening and when.

“The group discussed becoming a constituted group and it was agreed that we will look to elect our committee members at the next meeting along with agreeing the constitution and standing orders.”

Progress has already been reported on a rat infestation of gardens at Peter Street and Michael Street where rubbish is to be removed and traps set.

Also on the action plan are new doors for John Street houses, replacing cobbled stones at the John Street car park with tarmacadam and overgrown bushes and trees to be cut back.

Morag said: “There will be a general weeding programme undertaken for the whole of the estate including the back paths and we are investigating bin stores for the John Street flats and clearing of communal drying greens of weeds.

“The steps down from John Street down to Mill Road are to be cleared of weeds and steps made safe.

“Larger 20mph speed restriction signs for George Street will also be looked at. We also discussed a skip day and litter pick.

“Provisional dates have been looked at and the feedback from residents on Facebook has been fantastic.

“We might need several skips and refreshments!

“We are also grateful to Highland Council for facilitating the meeting and First Battalion the Scottish Highlanders Cadets for the use of their hut.”
