East Kilbride’s core town centre is an example of a centre that is heavily over reliant on retail uses. This has resulted in a town centre which does not fully meet the needs of the local community, lacks investment and potentially faces continued decline unless positive action is taken quickly. In order to address the challenges key town centre stakeholders have developed an initial vision for the centre. This focuses on creating a more inclusive and sustainable centre with a greater mix of complementary uses. The Vision was the subject of an extended Public Engagement event through the course of September 2023 held in the Town Centre. The Masterplan was subsequently endorsed by the Executive Committee of SLC at a meeting held on 13/09/2023.
