Mixed views on nurs­ery

Some East Kil­bride res­i­dents have slammed pro­pos­als to build a nurs­ery on West­wood recre­ation ground – but there were mixed views over the pro­posal on­line.

Jennifer Fos­ter posted:“I agree that the pitches should be main­tained prop­erly and used for their orig­i­nal pur­pose. I also would like to see a new coun­cil nurs­ery pur­pose-built, how­ever, there are plenty of ex­ist­ing brown­field sites to do that on. Where the new Lidl is be­ing built at the cen­tre would have been a prime site.”

Margaret Macdon­ald agreed, say­ing:“A dump that could be re­gen­er­ated with vi­sion. The coun­cil should be work­ing with the lo­cal com­mu­nity to re­gen­er­ate this area as fund­ing is avail­able through many av­enues.”

El­speth McManus said:“The coun­cil has an obli­ga­tion to re­tain this green space for all its lo­cal res­i­dents. They can­not pos­si­bly think that steal­ing this green space is ac­cept­able. It is time there was some TLC put into this park. “It is way over­due.” How­ever, Lesley Casey posted: “Pop­u­lar recre­ation ground? It’s never used and is a com­plete eye­sore.”

Steven Mushet wrote:“No one uses it any­way. It’s a waste of ground...just for dog walk­ers. Noth­ing hap­pens there.”

Emma Hamil­ton added:“No one’s used it for years so it’s about time this wasted space got put to use.”

John Mc­glone posted:“Just a shower of Nim­bys.”
