I wrote to Glasgow City Council, Land Services, 20 Cadogan Street, Glasgow G2 7AD.
giving my concern over the removal of the famous Dassie Green gates and asked that they be given some place of prominence in the grand renewal project. I received a very nice reply from Mr.Brian Swan, Design Engineer. GCC.  ( see extract )

"Dear Mr.McArthur
Thank you for your letter.....enclosing your website photographs of the James Watt statue and the Dassie Green gates detail.  Your website information has been extremely helpful....I have given the Architectural Restoration Team your website address.
