Council consultation

Two consultations are being run by South Lanarkshire Council which will affect local services for at least the next five years.

A draft Council Plan and Community Plan have been put forward and members of the public are being asked for their views.

The Council Plan, which runs until 2027, will set out the priorities for the area and how local services will be delivered by the council including everything from schools to care facilities and council houses to waste collection and recycling.

The Community Plan, which runs until 2032, will show how a wide range of organisations and groups, including the council, police, NHS, and voluntary groups, will work together on behalf of local people.

Commenting, Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley said:

“I would urge everyone in Lanark and Hamilton East to look into these two plans and take part in the consultation process.

“The two plans will have huge ramifications for residents across South Lanarkshire for at least the next five years so it is vital that people make their voices heard.

“Everything from schooling to recycling and social care to leisure centres will be affected so every voice needs to be heard otherwise the council will not be able to make the right decisions.

Both surveys run until 17th June 2022.
