Following the planning application lodged by Waitrose for a store and new all-weather pitch for West of Scotland Football Club, local MP Jo Swinson said:
"Now that plans have been lodged with the Council, local residents can see if Waitrose has listened to the concerns raised during the community consultation when they designed the store and the new pitch.
"Since plans for the new store were announced, many residents have told me how much they would look forward to enjoying a local Waitrose and the further choice it will provide for shoppers in the area. However it's vital that the application is properly assessed to see how it will affect the village shops, especially as this proposed development is outwit the town centre. We have such a vibrant town centre and it would be a shame to lose that.
"I would urge all residents who wish to comment on the plans to air their view to the Council planning department, who will take them into account as they assess the application."
"All documents relating to the planning application will be available on East Dunbartonshire Council's Planning and Building Standards website athttp://bit.ly/PiORae "
