MSP slams RCH for poor ground maintenance

Greenock and Inverclyde MSP Stuart McMillan has today called for River Clyde Homes to clean up its act and deal with the mounting ground maintenance issues in the Hope Street and Antigua Street area.

Having recently walked around these and adjoining streets while out with a local postal worker for a morning shift, Stuart contacted River Clyde Homes to report issues with weeds and overgrown shrubs.

Commenting, Stuart said:

“Having reported these issues at the beginning of September, I hoped that this area would have been sorted long ago. I was told that RCH workers were four weeks behind in their ground maintenance and that they would be moving in to Greenock at the beginning of the last week in September, but three weeks on, the area has still not been touched.

“You can see from the pictures provided that the issue here is not just that the ground maintenance programme is behind schedule – this area has clearly not been touched in quite some time.

“I am not in the business of issuing complaints about local organisations just on a whim, but in receiving regular feedback from constituents and seeing RCH’s work, or lack of it, first-hand, it’s time that RCH starts providing the service that their tenants are paying for.

“Until this work is completed, I will keep up the pressure on RCH. If any of my constituents have similar issues in their area, please feel free to contact my office on 720930”.
