With Cambuslang Main Street looking brighter thanks to street planters, hanging baskets and barrier baskets, Cambuslang Community Council are hoping to spread the environmental improvements to other parts of the town. At the end of July, the Community Council applied for a new grant of  from the Scottish Government’s Community Choices Fund. The application is for almost £59,000 to fund a project ‘Greening Cambuslang:  changing neighbourhoods for the better’.  The aim of the project is to inspire the community to improve the local environment of Cambuslang.  Through a method called ‘Participatory Budgeting’, local people would make decisions on funding ideas for neighbourhood environmental improvements (such as street planting, community gardens, biotopes, neighbourhood street furniture, public art, environment-related events) from local community, resident or tenant groups, individual tenants or residents, schools or clubs.  We expect to hear by the end of August whether we have been successful. Fingers crossed!
