Moss Heights - Cardonald

Postby QueenOfTartan » Tue Oct 07, 2008 4:32 pm

Hello there :)
I am a third year media student from Glasgow Caledonian University. As part of the course this semester I have to write weekly news articles about the ward in which I live (Cardonald). This week I intend to write my article about the proposed £14M regeneration of the Moss Heights tower blocks in Cardonald. I was curious to know if anyone on this board has any tales to tell about these recognisable local landmarks or knows anyone who might. One of the rules of the exercise is that I have to have quotes from original sources and I do not currently have a very comprehensive list of contacts for the area. I also do not feel comfortable going from door to door in the area at present.
Any help at all would be absolutely so appreciated, and I would of course make available the finished article if anyone wants to see what has been written.
Thanks in advance, Kayleigh George.

Hi, thanks for that, I did have a quick look, but a lot of those posts are a few years old and I'd like to get peoples permission to use their words and preferably get some new spontaneous comments ^.^

Maybe you should contact the Local Housing Organisation and ask to speak with some of their committee. Maybe one of then lived there. They would also be able to provide you with some details about the decision to invest in these flats. It may also be worth contacting Councillor Alistair Watson and asking to speak with him about the proposal. Councillors often assist students in this way. Just this week I had an interview with a student who was working on a paper relating to Darnley. The interview lasted over an hour. It is best to make sure you tell him what you are doing and how long you would want to speak with him if you decide to contact him.
