Hamilton Advertiser - - ON THE BEAT -

Hamil­ton’s par­lia­men­tar­i­ans Chris­tian Mckelvie MSP and An­gela Craw­ley MP were this week de­lighted by the lat­est pro­pos­als.

In a joint state­ment, Ms Mckelvie and Ms Craw­ley said:“the pro­posed re-de­vel­op­ment of the Hamil­ton Town Ho­tel is yet an­other ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of how the heart is be­ing put back into Hamil­ton.

“This pro­posal will bring jobs, in­vest­ment and op­por­tu­nity to our con­stituents, which is ex­actly what we hoped to achieve in the ‘Our Town, Your Voice’ town cen­tre report.

“With an SNP Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment and an SNP ad­min­is­tra­tion in South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, we are start­ing to see mo­men­tum build­ing be­hind the cam­paign to re­gen­er­ate Hamil­ton’s town cen­tre.

“This de­vel­op­ment is in ad­di­tion to the pro­posal to bring Weather­spoons to Hamil­ton, the new UWS Cam­pus and South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s re­cently an­nounced 24-point plan for the town cen­tre.”

Last week a pub­lic meet­ing was held to dis­cuss the fu­ture of the town cen­tre.

The event aimed to build on the Our Town, Your Voice report rec­om­men­da­tions from Ms Mckelvie and Ms Craw­ley, and of­fered an in­sight into the coun­cil’s 24-point plan strat­egy.

It also out­lined plans to bring va­cant ground back into use.
