The com­mu­nity coun­cil sur­vey team was made up of John Batch­ler, Linda Wal­lace, Michelle Farmer and Iain McKen­zie.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil chair John Tay­lor said: “The re­sults of the sur­vey are a call for ac­tion to im­prove the town cen­tre, ad­dress public con­cerns about crime, pro­vide bet­ter fa­cil­i­ties for sports and leisure, es­pe­cially for young peo­ple, and pro­tect and en­hance our green space.

“Eco­nomic times are hard but there is much that we can do. Other towns have shown that they can im­prove and we are invit­ing peo­ple to get in­volved in help­ing change Cam­bus­lang for the bet­ter.”

John Batch­ler added: “The re­sults of the sur­vey re­quire an am­bi­tious agenda of im­prove­ments.

“Some of the is­sues can be dealt with rel­a­tively easily over the short term with suf­fi­cient com­mu­nity com­mit­ment and sup­port from rel­e­vant part­ners such as South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

“Oth­ers are long- term as­pi­ra­tions, es­pe­cially at a time of cuts in public spend­ing, but are nev­er­the­less im­por­tant parts of any vi­sion for im­prov­ing Cam­bus­lang.”
