to Building Control about 6-7 Doune Gdns.

J. [CENSORED: surname] suggested we should write to "Evening Times" to put residents' points of view over multi-letting and its effects on neighbours.

to Roads Dept. again about flooding in Queen Mgt. Road and Wilton St.

Through traffic was discussed. J. [CENSORED: surname] pointed out that too many complaints about problems with parking were likely to produce a general parking ban. The difficulties of turning right, or left, at the foot of Belmont St. were again discussed. J. [CENSORED: surname] told us that the Community Council were considering a request to restrict access in Lyndhurst Gdns.

Crime Alert: on Wed. 5th Feb. residents of the area, together with members of the Police Crime Prevention Panel will canvass the area for support in our mini "Crime Alert". (At the same time noting the number of multi-let flats in the area) A public meeting is to be held in Kelvin/Stevenson Church on Mon. 10th Feb. when senior Police officers will be present, security advice will be available, and a film will be shown.

Multi-lets : there are thought to be two new multi-lets at 213 W. St. A rowdy party had to be broken up by the police, who also charged people with illegal parking at the fire access. J. [CENSORED: surname] will bring up subject at Comm. Council on 20th when D. [CENSORED: surname] will be present. The idea of joining forces with other Res. Assocs. for a public meeting where councillors would be present was again discussed.
