Evening Times - - NEWS -

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.”
