Local Action Plans

Have your say and help shape future plans for our towns and neighbourhoods.

Local action plans

We've launched a series of public consultations to help develop Local Actions Plans which will assist in transforming towns and neighbourhoods across the local authority.

The online consultations for Eaglesham, Giffnock and Clarkston, (including Netherlee and Williamwood) will launch on 3 October 2022: eastrenfrewshireprogramme.commonplace.is/

There'll also be community drop-in consultation events and you are welcome to attend any of the following:

  • Eastwood House - Tuesday 4 October - 9.30am to 11am
  • Eastwood House - Wednesday 5 October - 3pm to 7pm
  • Clarkston Hall - Tuesday 18 October - 9.30am to 11am
  • Clarkston Library - Wednesday 19 October 3pm to 7pm
  • Eglinton Arms Hotel - Tuesday 1 November 9.30am - 11am and 3.30pm - 7pm

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

The Local Action Plans will help identify and develop projects that could be delivered when funding opportunities arise.

The investments can cover a wide range of projects such as upgrading town centre public realm and green spaces, making better use of land and existing buildings, shop front improvement schemes, improved digital connectivity and developing active travel opportunities.

Online consultations for Barrhead, Newton Mearns, Thornliebank, Busby and Neilston have now closed. The initial analysis can be found below. You can still view the consultation pages.

The detailed responses received are being discussed within the Council and with stakeholders, and a draft list of short, medium, and long-term projects will be produced for further public input prior to finalisation.

If you'd like to be kept informed about regeneration in your area and haven't already subscribed, email business@eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk and include your name, post code and town of interest.
