The best way of understanding those things is to ask you, the residents of Waverley Park, about your everyday experiences.

Please tell us! You can take a picture, write a few words, make a video or send us a sketch - whatever is best for you.

The addition of any sort of community socialising space would be great. Something that suits both young and old. I understand that some WP residents would be concerned that "undesirable" people might be attracted to these spaces, but this is a p...

We have been residents of WP (Ravenswood) for 25 years. It is a great place to live, but there is no doubt the main issue to be resolved is traffic. It has always been an issue but has got worse over the years. I am fed up of the road outside our ...

If any changes to traffic flow are planned, would it be possible to do have some sort of 'trial' period first of all, perhaps using removable bollards. This would allow the knock-on effects to be monitored. While I want the traffic problem to ...

The most pressing issue for me is the speed and the volume of traffic that come through Waverley Park, which is clearly originally designed as a residential housing estate. The data collected by the traffic survey objectively shows that the speed...

We really love living here and really appreciate the community spirit! We are on Ravenwsood Drive and have kids at primary school, and agree that traffic is the main problem! I think that there should be some speed bumps on Ravenswood so that...

The speed and volume of traffic is an issue. That said, I was concerned to see images of the upturned car on Ravenswood Drive used on this forum - having arrived at the site of this accident seconds after it happened witnesses agreed that the car ...

First the positives - great community spirit, back lanes potentially a safe, green space for children to play, and families to congregate/enjoy a cuppa (within reason/current restrictions). Could do with a community development approach to improve...

I would like to start off by commending the Waverley Park Collective for their hard work so far. The website is great and the map/experience section are beneficial to the project. The work in monitoring traffic volume etc. in the area was also ver...

I echo the sentiments of many other residents, the through traffic is a serious problem and needs addressed to return some balance to Waverley Park.

In reply to “anonymous” - Why do people “fear moving traffic” and their assertion that opposing such a proposal “does not make any logical sense”. I and other residents in Waverley are opposed to turning the area into a cul-de-sac, increasing ...

The back lanes: I feel this is dead space. Ours attracts vandalism, people hanging around. They're depressing spaces and not great for walking on. I'd love to see what would be possible in terms of planting in them, resurfacing or even closing the...

I love living here - we're lucky to have a relatively quite part of the city, proximal to a wealth of amenities and beautiful housing stock all around us. Traffic is definitely my main concern - too much, too fast on Ravenswood Drive. We have youn...

The ongoing drain problem at the corner of Midlothian and Pollokshaws needs thorough investigation by the roads department to find out what is going on underground. This the only way it'll be resolved Removing the lampost bins was a loss of amenit...

This is just a reminder that the roads in Waverley Park are residential. Why people fear moving traffic from residential roads and returning it to the very roads that are designed to cater for that type, volume and speed of vehicle does not make ...

Waverley Park is a great place to live but could be improved. Here are a few suggestions: 1. No road closures - Some residents are pushing for Dinmont and Durward to be closed off. This would create a local cul-de-sac and shunt more traffic pas...

Ravenswood Road is a key access road, particularly in winter when it is the only road with a gradient that allows roads to be used. All Waverley park roads need to be kept open to prevent pushing more traffic into Shawlands and passing two schools...

There has been a definite increase in traffic throughout Waverley Park with more traffic using it as a cut through. The junction of Dinmont and Ravenswood can be particularly busy at times and larger vehicles like articulated lorries are becoming ...

When I was a kid I played in the street. I cycled up and down. I played Tig, I was trusted to walk to the local park with friends from age 8. That's what I want for my own kids. And it's not that I can't trust my kids to behave. I can't trust the ...
