Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Coun­cil­lors from across the po­lit­i­cal di­vide praised Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil for their sur­vey.

Cam­bus­lang West Labour mem­ber Richard Tul­let said:“I was de­lighted to at­tend the launch as it pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to have a pro­duc­tive dis­cus­sion on the re­port and look at short, medium and long-term aims.

“I will cer­tainly be keen to con­tinue to work closely with the com­mu­nity coun­cil as it looks to take this re­port for­ward.

“I am sure this re­port will not be a one-off and I would en­cour­age peo­ple in­ter­ested to get in­volved and see what can be achieved by work­ing to­gether.”

SNP coun­cil­lor for Cam­bus­lang East Chris­tine Deanie added:“The sur­vey re­port rightly notes that many of the chal­lenges are be­ing ex­pe­ri­enced by neigh­bour­ing ar­eas and I can see con­sid­er­able scope for co­op­er­a­tion with Half­way Com­mu­nity Coun­cil in ad­dress­ing them.

“I am very en­cour­aged that Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil are keen to ex­plore op­por­tu­ni­ties for co­op­er­a­tion.”

“We are plan­ning to dis­cuss the re­sults with a wide range of com­mu­nity groups over the com­ing months.
