Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

The re­gen­er­a­tion of the Main Street is cen­tral to the Scot­tish Green Party’s ef­forts in Cam­bus­lang West. We have a five-point plan which we hope will help re­verse this de­cline.

Com­mis­sion a fea­si­bil­ity study into in­stalling a mo­du­lar struc­ture to in­crease the ca­pac­ity of the Al­li­son Drive car park. Mo­du­lar car parks can be erected quickly and cost-ef­fec­tively, in­creas­ing the ca­pac­ity of the cur­rent site by 80-100 per cent.

Build bin en­clo­sures to re­move one of the most ob­vi­ous eye­sores, the large dump­ster-style bins.

Re-eval­u­ate the road lay­out to find a way that in­creases avail­able park­ing while en­cour­ag­ing driv­ers to stop and use lo­cal busi­nesses.

In­tro­duce a cus­tomer park­ing per­mits scheme. The cur­rent 30-minute limit on park­ing on the Main Street is detri­men­tal to many busi­nesses. We be­lieve th­ese busi­nesses should be able to is­sue per­mits to cus­tomers, al­low­ing them to park for up to 90 min­utes.

Set up an im­prove­ment fund to im­prove and main­tain the Main Street.
