Ambitious Shawfield plans can be viewed
Event for the public
Residents in Rutherglen are being encouraged to view extensive plans for the future regeneration of the Shawfield area.
Clyde Gateway has organised a community engagement event at the Glencairn social club tomorrow, Thursday.
Experts will be on hand to provide information about phase two of the Shawfield project, with Clyde Gateway confirming planning applications for the site would be submitted “in the coming weeks”.
Jim Clark, senior manager for communications at Clyde Gateway, said: “Shawfield phase two is a large area, some 30 hectares in size, bounded by Glasgow Road, the M74 and the Clyde Gateway road where it reaches Oatlands.
“We would like to see and encourage substantial industrial development in this location and we will, in the coming weeks, be submitting planning applications to South Lanarkshire Council.
“It will complement the extensive work that we have carried out at Shawfield phase one, which is the area of the former industrial estate upon which the first new office complex, Red Tree Magenta, is nearing completion with the first occupiers set to move in by the summer.
“The redevelopment of Phase 2 will be every bit as extensive and ambitious.
“Clyde Gateway has dedicated substantial resources over the next three years that will enable us to carry out remediation, infrastructure, enabling and earthworks, subject to us receiving the relevant planning permissions.”
Clyde Gateway, who will spend millions ridding the area of chromium waste, has written to business owners and occupiers in the area, but stress the event is open to all members of the public.
It will run from 11am until 7pm.
Changing The Shawfield area is set to undergo a massive transformation
