Last Saturday, I went along to a party to celebrate the achievements of people involved in the Children's Wood and North Kelvin Meadow. The open space at Clouston Street has planning permission for a community garden and woodland area managed by the Children's Wood. It is possible to go ahead with the plans as a result of a housing proposal being rejected.

After many years of campaigning by the local community, this site is now zoned as greenspace and established as part of the Glasgow West Conservation Area. I have consistently objected to sale of this land by the Council for a housing development. It is now going to be retained as open space and much appreciated community asset.
