Local Liberal Democrats are calling for greater services to be provided in Woodilee Village.
Jo Swinson MP has written to BT Openreach and four developers to seek an urgent resolution to the lack of fibre broadband for approximately 750 of 900 new homes. She commented: “ It is unacceptable, not to mention short-sighted, for fast broadband services not to be properly planned and installed in a brand new housing estate. We know how essential good internet service is for modern living, so there really is no excuse. BT and the housing developers must each answer for their part in this failure, and state what they will do to rectify the situation."
This is one of a number of problems at Woodilee, with residents noting that while bus stops have been put in place, no bus services currently run from Woodilee Village. This is a particular problem as commuters who live in Woodilee need to drive to Lenzie for train services.
Councillor Rod Ackland said “I am glad to see that a shop has now opened at Woodilee, however I am worried that residents are not receiving the services they were promised. Not only does this cause issues in Woodilee, but makes the problem of parking at Lenzie worse.”
