Lennox Herald - - NEWS - Lor­raine Weir

Cam­paign­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers are con­tin­u­ing their fight to get pi­geon mess at Dum­bar­ton East sta­tion sorted out once and for all.

Dum­bar­ton East and Cen­tral Com­mu­nity Coun­cil were due to meet last night (Tues­day) as the Len­nox Her­ald went to print to dis­cuss the on­go­ing is­sue which they have been bat­tling to get tack­led for years.

They have been told by West Dun­bar­ton­shire Coun­cil that the author­ity is cur­rently try­ing to find the £30,000 fund­ing re­quired to put in the bird­proof­ing mea­sures.

Joint sec­re­tary of the com­mu­nity coun­cil, Dorothy Heron, said: “The coun­cil did a clean up un­der the bridge ev­ery few weeks which was fine but within a few days it was in a mess again.

“Kids are hav­ing to walk through it on the way home. It’s ab­so­lutely dis­gust­ing.”

Mean­while, a plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion has been lodged to in­stall plas­tic bird de­ter­rent spikes at the rail­way bridge at Buchanan Street in Dum­bar­ton East.

Net­work Rail has lodged the plans which also in­volve re­pairs to the bridge and in­stalling fenc­ing.
