 Have Your Say Today – East Renfrewshire Programme – Commonplace

Over the next 5 years, the UK and Scottish Governments are providing capital regeneration funding opportunities for town centres and neighbourhoods across Scotland. We want to make sure that our communities in East Renfrewshire are able to make the most of these opportunities by delivering on transformational plans across the area.

We want to know about the changes and improvements you would like to see made to spaces, buildings and facilities so we can start to plan future projects. 

A paper-based survey is also available at Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire’s market places. They are hosting drop-ins in the Avenue Shopping Centre, Newton Mearns (10am – 3pm, Mon – Thurs) and 56 Kelburn Street, Barrhead (10am – 4pm, Mon – Fri) until Monday 20 June. You can also get involved at the Neilston Development Trust (84 Main Street, Neilston) 

These consultations will close on Monday 20 June. The remainder of the main towns and neighbourhoods will be covered in the second half of 2022.
