Cambuslang Community Council have submitted an application for almost £130,000 to the Scottish Government under the Town Centre Communities Capital Fund for improvements to the Main Street. Following two focus groups and extensive consultation with residents and the businesses in the Main Street, the application seeks funding for: a new planting programme (street planters, hanging baskets, barrier baskets); enclosures for the waste bins; a coherent colour scheme for railings, barriers and shutters; welcome signs at either end of the Main Street; and virtual shopfronts for the vacant units. 40 shopkeepers have signed up to participate in the hanging baskets scheme. We expect to hear the outcome of the bid before the end of October.
