PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON CUNINGAR PARK EXPANSION PLANS

Clyde Gateway is looking to extend Cuningar Loop Woodland Park with the use of 6 hectares of adjacent land, that is presently vacant and derelict, to develop additional amenities and attractions.

A series of public consultations on the proposals are being held in two locations at separate times:-

(i) Cuningar Loop Woodland Park : Monday 14 October and Tuesday 15 October between 11am and 3pm – the location will be a temporary building (gazebo) in the vicinity of the Adventure Playground

(ii) Rutherglen Town Hall : Wednesday 23 October between 3pm and 7.30pm

A specially designed exhibition will be on display with detailed information related to the proposal. Staff from Clyde Gateway and from SWECO, our appointed planning agent, will be on hand on all three occasions to answer any questions,

Graeme Inglis, Project Manager at Clyde Gateway said: “Cuningar Loop Woodland Park has been a huge success since opening in 2015 and the aim of the extension is to increase its attractiveness to local residents and visitors from further afield.

“The initial designs on display during this consultation feature additional woodland paths, including an extension to the boardwalk adjacent to the River Clyde, together with additional seating and picnic areas, and newly developed art walks and education zones. We are also looking at installing a safe place where cycles can be stored.

“Everyone who comes along will have the option of filling out a questionnaire, but we are also taking comments, views and thoughts by e-mail and through a specially set-up Facebook page.

“At the end of the consultation, we will analyse all the responses, with the aim of applying all received views and opinions to the existing design proposals which will then be finalised and submitted to South Lanarkshire Council. As with all major planning applications, the process will include neighbour notifications that will allow for a period of time for formal comments and views to be made to the council.

“If planning permission is granted, and subject to the funding being in place, the construction of the Phase 2 extension to Cuningar Loop Woodland Park would get underway in Summer 2020.

The address for submitting written comments is Cuningar-Loop-Phase-2@sweco.co.uk
