- At the start of October, we opened the new temporary car park earlier than planned to help alleviate parking around the area due to the closure of the main train station car park for maintenance. The car park, adjacent to the current park-and-ride facility, is accessible via Station Road and provides around 100 additional parking spaces to the community
- Two of our development partners will soon be setting up their compounds in the future retail area, near to Village Square 1A, to allow construction of their sites to begin. These compounds will provide dedicated parking for the construction teams to help reduce parking on nearby roads. In addition, one of Village Square footpaths will be closed with pedestrians being re-directed onto the block paving path
- The contractors appointed to build Renfrewshire Council’s socially rented houses will also be setting up their compound in the coming weeks, and we expect construction to start later this month
- Road works continue on the A8 as power and water main diversion works take place to support the new motorway junction
The Residents Committee have received a communication from RMG to confirm that, following guidance from both the government and Renfrewshire Council, BAE Systems have taken the decision to close the two estate playparks within Dargavel to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. As the playparks are not cleaned or disinfected in any way they represent a potential infection risk to the children using the playparks.
As a result the smaller playpark next to the playing fields opposite Taylor Wimpey H3 has been locked and the playpark on Birch Road next to the Persimmon/Charles Church H2 parcel has had heras fencing placed around it to prevent access.
Given current government guidance this is sensible and will help to ensure that the risk of infection to young children, their families and friends is minimised as far as possible.
