A consultation has been launched into plans designed to breathe new life into Kirkintilloch Town Centre.

Since 2011 a series of workshops, questionnaires and meetings on how to reverse the area’s decline have resulted in a draft masterplan being produced.

The ambitious scheme includes restoring Kirkintilloch Town Hall, building new housing, improving parking and creating a new public space outside St Mary’s Parish Church.

Next week will see the start of a final consultation, with the plans being displayed at Kirkintilloch’s William Patrick Library and a series of events being held for people to raise queries and provide feedback.

Council leader Rhondda Geekie: “This masterplan provides a strategy for regeneration in the town centre and sets out a shared vision and a range of proposals informed by the comprehensive programme of consultation and engagement that has been undertaken over the last 18 months.

“Its aims cannot be achieved overnight on our own and it is essential that we continue to work with local champions, interest groups, business community, residents, private sector and other public agencies to bring the masterplan’s aims and proposals to fruition.”

If you would like to have your say on the plans you can go to one of the consultation events held in the William Patrick Library from 2-8pm on June 10, June 24, July 10 and July 25.

You can view the draft masterplan and make comments on the council’s website at www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk

Copies are also available from council offices.
