Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

Cam­bus­lang has been hit by suc­ces­sive blows with the clo­sure of all its bank branches and the threat­ened clo­sure of the lo­cal Job­cen­tre. This has not helped lo­cal busi­nesses. The town cen­tre needs spe­cific fo­cus to ad­dress the is­sues to en­sure that foot­fall im­proves.

We are al­ready work­ing closely with Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil to sup­port the rec­om­men­da­tions from its re­cent sur­vey look­ing at the re­gen­er­a­tion of the town cen­tre. Our pri­or­i­ties would be:

● To re­gen­er­ate Cam­bus­lang town cen­tre and pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment.

● To im­prove park­ing and car emis­sions is­sues in Cam­bus­lang Main Street.

● To value and sup­port com­mu­nity groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

● To ac­tively sup­port our lo­cal schools to close the at­tain­ment gap.

An SNP-run SLC would em­power com­mu­ni­ties by de­volv­ing 1 per cent of bud­get for lo­cal pri­or­i­ties and projects, to be de­cided at ward level. That equates to ap­prox­i­mately £1m over five years for Cam­bus­lang West.
