A community group is to be set up in a Dundee housing estate to help regenerate the area.
The move comes following a meeting of residents in Dryburgh, which was held to give them a chance to air their concerns about antisocial issues in the area.
Labour councillor Charlie Malone, who organised the meeting, said that there had been a fantastic response, with about 50 people attending.
Mr Malone said: “There was a lot of concern and a lot of anger expressed about several issues in Dryburgh.
“It was agreed that a community group will be formed to address these.
“It was also agreed that local residents want to look at regenerating the area along the lines of how people got involved with the Save Lochee High Street campaign.”
Mr Malone said that issues raised at the meeting included traffic concerns, the upcoming cladding programme, bins and street cleanliness, education, antisocial behaviour and drugs.
He said: “There was a lot of anger about illegal parking in Dryburgh, speeding along roads and people using the streets as an outdoor garage to mend cars. Representatives from Police Scotland were there and we agreed we would work with officers to address road traffic concerns.
“It was also agreed that we will speak to Dundee City Council about what is happening with the cladding programme. Residents are asking for more information and it was felt they are entitled to this.”
More than 150 people living in Dryburgh Street launched a petition in September calling for external wall insulation to be fitted to their homes.
They claimed they were being unfairly treated as some residents in private properties elsewhere in the city had benefited from the work, but they had been left out. The scheme for council-owned properties was halted after an issue arose with the former contractor.
Councillor Malone said that it had also been suggested that the group speak with the local authority to try to identify more green space areas for young people to use. He added: “There was a real sense of community at the meeting, with everyone keen to work together to improve the area.”
A Dundee City Council spokeswoman said: “We are happy to continue our dialogue with the community in Dryburgh and discuss any issues they have.”
