Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

When I was at West Coats Pri­mary I would go to Cam­bus­lang Main Street at lunchtime and head straight to Russo’s for frit­ters then Bot­ter­ils or Les­ley’s Chemist for some pick and mix. A week­end treat would be to go to the video shop then maybe get some ice cream from the Sta­tion Cafe. Most of th­ese places don’t ex­ist any more and we need to get them back.

Cam­bus­lang doesn’t have the Main Street it used to but that’s not to say that it can’t have this again. It’s up to the coun­cil to make sure that the Main Street gets the at­ten­tion that it de­serves. Clearly there is the de­mand. Park­ing and the in­fra­struc­ture need to be scru­ti­nised.

The Main Street saw devel­op­ment over 15 years ago but noth­ing since. Why has one part of the Main Street seen lit­tle growth? We need to speak to re­tail­ers and find out what in­cen­tives would make them come to Cam­bus­lang. Why are the new re­tail units not suit­able?

If we pro­mote the Main Street then peo­ple will take pride once again in the area.
