The Countryside & Greenspace Service department of South Lanarkshire Council are updating their list of  Local Nature Conservation Sites (LNCS) and are looking for recommendations on parts of Cambuslang that might be designated as LNCS. Such sites are designated on the basis of the following criteria: species diversity; habitat importance; connectivity; and additional biodiversity features such as species rarity.

A map of the sites which are currently on the LNCS list, within the (green coloured) greenbelt and urban areas (which is SLC’s initial focus), is here.

If you have any suggestions for sites which you consider to be of local importance that SLC could add to their list of potential sites, please contact: Louisa Maddison, Biodiversity Officer, Countryside & Greenspace Service, South Lanarkshire Council on Tel: 01698 717797 (mon-weds)  or  07788 351 851 or
