Local Development Plan

A Reporter has been appointed by the Scottish Government to assess a number of proposed development sites in Strathaven and Glassford. Information on these sites can be found at the DPEA website.  Strathaven and Glassford Community Council has provided responses to the Reporter on a number of sites including the East Overton Extension, the site at Glasgow Road and a site in Glassford.

Traffic Management

Strathaven and Glassford Community Council ran a consultation on a proposal to change the traffic priorities at the Common Green.  Specifically the proposal is to make Bridge Street one-way leaving the Common Green and Wellbrae one-way into the Common Green.

The consultation resulted in a significant response, with the results sent to SLC in late January 2020 ahead of a further transport liaison meeting due within the next few weeks.
