Hamilton Town's Future

Have your say on Hamilton’s future

As the Member of Parliament for Lanark and Hamilton East I am invested in the town’s future and success. I want our town centre to reflect the needs and wishes of its residents, business owners and visitors in the years to come. While South Lanarkshire Council are making plans to regenerate the area, I want to make sure everyone who uses Hamilton Town Centre has the opportunity to have their say.

As a result, I ran a consultation from September to December 2023 to allow you to have your voice heard on your vision for the future of our town centre. The last town centre consultation took place in 2016-17 and since then we have witnessed significant economic challenges, including the pandemic. It is now time to consider the challenges and opportunities for the town centre and give the community a chance to have their voices heard in shaping its future.

The responses to the consultation have been analysed by my team and the final report has now been published and presented to key stakeholders including the council. You can view the report on my website here.
