Stop the eviction!

First of all, here’s a great video shot at Sunday’s Big Lunch event which explains what the Meadow is all about:

GCC slapped a 14-day eviction notice on the North Kelvin Meadow on 15 July, so now’s the time to do everything we can to save this precious local resource.

Click here to check out our latest press release (and some of our other press activity).  Please forward the latest press release to anyone you think might be interested. The main points are:

  • Further to GCC’s eviction notice posted on the land on 15 July, Bob Doris MSP and Councillor Billy McAllister have come out in support of the Meadow
  • Over 100 local residents showed their support by turning out for the Big Lunch
  • Over 500 people have signed the petition protesting against GCC’s plans to close the Meadow and sell the land for flats

If you disagree with the eviction notice, please write to Steve Inch, executive director of development & regeneration services at Glasgow City Council and tell him. His address is 229 George Street, Glasgow G1 1QU and his email is: steve.inch@drs.glasgow.gov.uk

If emailing, please copy the Meadow on your email (northkelvinmeadow@gmail.com)

It’s also good to copy in the Canal Ward councillors:

billy.mcallister@councillors.glasgow.gov.uk
ellen.hurcombe@councillors.glasgow.gov.uk
kieran.wild@councillors.glasgow.gov.uk
jim.mackechnie@councillors.glasgow.gov.uk

You can download an A4 poster here encouraging others to protest to the Council. Please put it up wherever you can.

Thanks!
