£6m plan is given back­ing from MP

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen MP Mar­garet Ferrier has wel­comed plans for a new £6.7 mil­lion sta­teof-the-art of­fice de­vel­op­ment at Shaw­field.

The scheme pro­pos­als have been sub­mit­ted to South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

If ap­proved, the Red Tree Shaw­field build­ing will pro­vide 30,000 square feet of of­fice space to small and medium-sized en­ter­prises (SMEs).

The plans fol­low the suc­cess of sim­i­lar Red Tree of­fice de­vel­op­ments al­ready in op­er­a­tion at Stonelaw Road in Ruther­glen and Dal­marnock Road, Bridgeton.

The Shaw­field de­vel­op­ment is the largest yet, and could po­ten­tially see as many as 166 new jobs cre­ated in the area.

Mar­garet Ferrier said: “This is fan­tas­tic news for Ruther­glen. If these plans are given the go- ahead, it will be an enor­mous boost for the area. As well as cre­at­ing lo­cal jobs, the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment will also bring land back into eco­nomic use.

“The trans­for­ma­tion of the area is a real lift for Ruther­glen. The level of in­vest­ment and com­mit­ment to this area is com­mend­able and I con­grat­u­late Clyde Gate­way on their on­go­ing work.
