Jo Swinson has revealed preliminary findings of her Bishopbriggs town centre survey, in a meeting with East Dunbartonshire Council Chief Executive Sue Bruce.
The survey has been underway in Bishopbriggs since July, with over 600 responses having been received.
Following the meeting held today to discuss town centre development, Jo commented:
“Today’s meeting was a useful update on redevelopment of Bishopbriggs town centre. It was also an opportunity to present the preliminary findings of my town centre survey to the Council’s Chief Executive.
“The survey results show a huge majority of people, 94%, are in favour of retaining the sports hall in its current location. Further, 87% of people want to see a high quality food retailer in the town centre.
“A full report on the survey will be presented in the New Year, at which point I will also seek a meeting with developers Muse (Formerly Amec) to discuss the findings with them. We have a unique opportunity to redevelop Bishopbriggs town centre, which should be a top priority for all stakeholders.”
