Website: Unfortunately the meeting between Anne Farrow and the school people had to be cancelled at short notice and will be re-arranged as soon as possible.
Anne Smart: Dorothy Wilson arranged for a ‘walkabout’ between council officials and Ms. Smart on 21st October. She was delighted, and the two council officials were most polite and attentive. We await their report. Ms Smart thanks the Access Group; for getting this done.
SURGE. Is a McKinnon Centre group and were being consulted by Joyce Barclay from the City Council about a wider disability strategy. Erik was invited and took part in what was a very positive meeting.
There was no post.
Email: New Dundee Station Development.
Fiona Finlayson who is the new manager at Thomas Herd House and is joining our group very helpfully took us through the proposal. The outcome was a unanimous rejection of the planned studs. From every angle we looked at it, the proposal made no sense. Gerry Conway to be advised.
There was no further business.
Date of next meeting – 7th December 2017.
