Politicians unite behind survey
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.”
A full copy of the survey report is available on the Cambuslang Community Council website at www. cambuslangcommunitycouncil.com.

Linda Wallace of Cambuslang Community Council, who co-authored the report, said: “This debate was only the first stage in the discussion of a new community strategy.
“We are planning to discuss the results with a wide range of community groups over the coming months.
