Traffic Management

Strathaven and Glassford Community Council is running 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.

A sub-group of the Community Council is in the process of holding meetings with representatives from South Lanarkshire Council and the three local councillors to consider options for improvements to traffic and transport within the Strathaven area.


Plans for the fund are well underway with the next steps being our second public consultation on the development of a Community Action Plan for Strathaven and Glassford.  This follows the recent initial open days and the recent extensive consultation across our community.  Survey forms were included in every copy of Strathaven Echoes and dleivered to every household in Strathaven and Glassford.  We thank you for your submissions and are currently working on development of the plan.  This is likely to be completed by early January 2019 with open days and publication by March 2019.


We are delighted that, through working in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council, we can announce that plans are in place to safeguard our historic castle for the future.  A meeting was held in early January 2019 to discuss the plans for remedial work on the structure and we will advise accordingly once we have more information.  At present discussions are continuing with Historic Environment Scotland to agree a means of safely carrying out the required work.
