Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

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.
