The following email was received today from East Renfrewshire Council,


I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the above private road,however it runs runs adjacent to the Cowan park in Barrhead.  Unfortunately we’ve received a complaint from the land owner regarding people parking in this vicinity in particular on Saturday mornings when ERSDA 7’s is taking place.
As such please can you put on the ersda website that people are not allowed to park on this road as well as highlighting this issue to all coaches who use this facility and ask them to relay this information to all parents of players.

Dubbs Road is highlighted in yellow below.
