Dis­cus­sion on Face­book was dom­i­nated by our story about South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s main is­sues re­port and the fact a mas­sive bit of green belt in New­ton could be des­ig­nated for hous­ing:

“Just what we need more houses , how about a sports cen­tre or a shop?”- Garry Ste­wart

“I wish they would just leave the green­ery alone.” Laura West­wa­ter

“I live in New­ton Farm so can’t re­ally be too crit­i­cal about new de­vel­op­ments, but they will need to re­di­rect the road in that zone. It’s ex­tremely dan­ger­ous at present, sev­eral 90 de­gree blind bends on gra­di­ents with high hedges.”- Gra­ham Crowe

“We have not got enough sec­ondary schools as it is. How are we sup­posed to ed­u­cate hun­dreds of more chil­dren?” - Zoe Carvill Wright

“South La­nark­shire Coun­cil are an ab­so­lute dis­grace. Money, money, money and no con­sid­er­a­tion for any­one who lives here.”- An­gela Lynch

“Be­fore houses are built we need to make sure that we have the ser­vices for the peo­ple mov­ing into them. Schools, GPs, shops and fa­cil­i­ties for teenagers. Let’s not cre­ate more con­crete jun­gles.”- Moira Jack­son

“The in­fra­struc­ture in Hall­side , New­ton and West­burn is al­ready at burst­ing point. The school rolls are at break­ing point, the roads are an ab­so­lute night­mare. The in­creased pop­u­la­tion and ve­hi­cles yet the Blan­tyre Farm Road and Cly­de­ford Bridge are the only way north. Be­tween Blan­tyre and To­ry­glen there is no ded­i­cated sport­ing fa­cil­ity of­fer­ing suit­able 7 a side pitches or ar­ti­fi­cial 11 a side pitches all year round.” Brysie But­ler

“So much for the wee vil­lage of West­burn, it’s now sur­rounded by large hous­ing de­vel­op­ments and the green belt has melted away.” Alexan­der Cun­ning­ham
