Public call for more town centre funding
NINE out of 10 of those who live in a Lanarkshire town want to see more money invested in the centre, a poll suggests.
A survey carried out by Antonine Centre owners, Bridges Fund Management, found that 90 per cent of local people would support improved backing for the centre.
Bridges has spent almost £1million on upgrades over the past two years with more improvements already in the pipeline.
Investment director Tom Tyler said the feedback, from the survey of 450 residents, reflected what the company anticipated following regular discussions with town centre residents.
Mr Tyler said: “Our recent survey revealed that 90 per cent of respondents want to see more investment in the town centre. We have spent close to £1m upgrading the Antonine Centre since taking over in May 2017.”
