Supermarket chiefs have been encouraged to involve the community as they move forward with their plans to build a new store.

East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson said that at a recent meeting, bosses for Morrisons said that no immediate action will be taken to progress the plans for a new superstore, with further information on their next steps likely to come in the New Year.

Ms Swinson added: “There has long been support for a more diverse retail offer and community facilities in the town centre.

“It seems that no further action will be taken this year by Morrisons as they weigh their options. The community will have to wait for their next move, though I have emphasised the importance of Morrisons engaging with local residents as the plans progress.”
