Travellers’ site

DISCUSSIONS are still underway over the future of a trashed travelling persons’ site.

The £800,000 site in Primrose Way, Lennoxtown, has been uninhabitable since becoming targeted by vandals and fly-tippers in early 2009.

The Herald understands that East Dunbartonshire Council have held a series of meetings with Highland Spring, who own the nearby Campsie Glen plant, with a view to them taking over the site.

Four pitches for travelling people would be retained if the plans are successful.

Thomas Glen, the council’s head of development and enterprise, said: “East Dunbartonshire Council continues to work proactively with Highland Spring to support the company in both maintaining and developing its business interests within Lennoxtown.

“Discussions between the parties are ongoing, and include consideration of options for developing the business on its existing site and possible expansion opportunities in the local area.

“East Dunbartonshire Council is committed to supporting local businesses such as Highland Spring and hopes to provide further details on these discussions over the coming months.”
