Along with Jamie Hepburn MSP I have been contacted by a number of local residents reporting a range of concerns around the condition of the flats at Millcroft Road and Greenrigg Road that back onto South Carbrain Road. We have recently written out to a significant number of residents because we are keen to learn their views on this matter and are undertaking both a postal survey and online survey of households in the vicinity of these properties to find out opinions on these issues and work out a way forward to bring improvements to this area. If you would like to complete this survey you can do so at the following link:https://goo.gl/A6Fw23

The majority of these flats are owned by registered private landlords, and the most recent figures we have received indicate that of the 312 flats there are 191 registered private landlords in the blocks, which equates to 61% of ownership. This therefore restricts the ability of the Council or any Housing Association to act to make improvements.
