How to protect your property from vandalism, fire, and other damage
By Amy MacdonaldA group of five property consultants are to join forces with Glasgow City Council to work with them to protect the homes of people who live on the outskirts of Glasgow.
In a joint statement released on Wednesday, property consultants McGraw Hill &Hill said they have been contacted by residents who live near the city centre who are worried about a surge in the number of people living on the streets.
The statement said the group had been approached by people from the “underground” who were concerned about the city’s growing numbers of people in the area and have contacted them.
“We have been working with residents of the City centre, who have shared with us their concerns about the growing number of homeless people in Glasgow and have told us that they would like to be able to live with their own properties as long as the conditions in their homes are not deteriorating,” it read.
“The City Council has a plan to address this, and we will continue to work alongside them to support them as they work to do this.”
The council has said it is working to address the problem, but there is no deadline for when it will.
Residents have been asking for a permanent solution to the problem as well as some support to address their own problems, including the cost of rebuilding their homes.
McGraw Hill has previously said that there is not a permanent plan in place for how to deal with homeless people who are living on Glasgow’s streets, but has acknowledged that some people are more vulnerable to violence than others.
