Rutherglen Reformer - - 100 Year Since Armistice Day - Jonathan Ged­des

A lo­cal hous­ing co-op­er­a­tive have ended their dis­pute with South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

Ear­lier this year West Whit­law­burn Hous­ing Co­Op­er­a­tive walked out on on­go­ing dis­cus­sions for a neigh­bour­hood plan for Whit­law­burn and Spring­hall, due to feel­ing that BAME (black, Asian and mi­nor­ity eth­nic) groups were not be­ing prop­erly in­volved in the con­sul­ta­tion.

How­ever the Co-op has re­joined the talks.

Paul Far­rell, di­rec­tor of WWHC said: “Fol­low­ing dis­cus­sions we are now com­fort­able to re-en­gage with the neigh­bour­hood plan­ning process. South La­nark­shire Coun­cil has given us pos­i­tive

as­sur­ances in re­la­tion to WWHC/WCRC in­clu­sion, a re­vised com­mu­ni­ca­tions plan to in­clude BAME house­holds and a re­vised method of con­sul­ta­tion.”

Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Fi­nance and Cor­po­rate Re­sources, Paul Man­ning, said: “We will, of course, be pleased to work with West Whit­law­burn Hous­ing Co­op­er­a­tive, and oth­ers, as we work to­wards a 10-year com­mu­nity-led plan.”
