Gordon Lyon from Bearsden sent us these dramatic photos of floods in Golf View, Bearsden after the heavy rain on Wednesday, December 30.

Despite drainage work by the council just before Christmas and assurances that they had improved drainage to some degree in the area this year it still filled with water up to about five feet.

Residents can no longer park their cars outside their own properties on Golf View, especially after they were severely damaged by flood water in 2013.

Mr Lyon said: “This is now a regular occurrence, it happens about twice a year every winter, but we’d recently been told by a council official that the problem had been identified and steps taken to allows us to eventually and park our cars in the street.

“It’s about time the council got this fixed once and for all - I’m getting really fed of it now. They tell us that the work will cost around £145k and could be planned for the 2015-16 financial year, but I have little confidence in anything they have told us now.”
