Lets Save Govanhill last week called for an emergency summit meeting with the leaders of Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Police Scotland declaring the time had now come for Govanhill to be afforded regeneration status and a zero tolerance policy towards crime implemented.
During an informal meeting with Nicola Sturgeon last Friday, the First Minister for Scotland agreed to attend this summit meeting bringing Police Scotland Chief Constable Phil Gormley. An invitation to attend the emergency summit meeting will be extended to the Leader of Glasgow City Council Frank McAveety.
These leaders of Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Police Scotland must now work together in partnership to end the fear and misery which prevails in the Govanhill ghetto. Govanhill must be afforded regeneration status and a zero tolerance crime policy implemented.
Further details of this emergency summit meeting will be posted on the website and updates given.
