Green light for houses The row rum­bles on af­ter London and Scot­tish In­vest­ments were granted per­mis­sion to build 89 fam­ily homes on five acres of derelict land at Red­wood Cres­cent in Peel Park as part of a £15mil­lion pri­vate hous­ing de­vel­op­ment.

There are also plans in the pipe­line for a multi-mil­lion pound re­tail park – although con­cerns have been raised over the im­pact this could have on the town cen­tre.

Danny Kane posted: “I’m 50/50 for/against this. I don’t agree en­tirely with their de­ci­sion.”

Linda McPhee hit out at the lack of so­cial hous­ing.

She said: “No coun­cil homes. I’ve waited more than 14 years and even with med­i­cal points, no chance. I know oth­ers housed quickly and in less need!”

Mean­while, Therese Pauline posted:“thriv­ing”. That’s a good one.

“How about get the shops and ameni­ties in first then the houses.”

Other peo­ple feel any fur­ther re­tail de­vel­op­ment in East Kil­bride would be likely to strug­gle.

Su­san Mcloone said:“Why an­other re­tail park?

“We have a town cen­tre that’s clos­ing down stores al­most monthly and a re­tail park at the Kings­gate much the same.

“Fill your empty cup­boards first then de­cide if you really need new ones.”

John Mitchell replied:“An­other green space lost.”

And Melody Band­ford added: “We need a proper park-and-ride fa­cil­ity first.”
