Local people in Craigneuk and Wishaw have given their overwhelming support to a proposal to build a bike pump track as part of plans which are gearing up to create a new recreational facility near to ‘The Venny’ (Glencassels Community Development Project).
Over 100 people completed a questionnaire about the project and 70% of respondents were extremely positive about the idea, saying it was “absolutely brilliant”, whilst another 39 people also gave signatures of support at the consultations.
Plans are gearing up to build a new recreational facility near to ‘The Venny’ (Glencassels Community Development Project) in the Craigneuk area of Wishaw for the benefit of the local community.
North Lanarkshire Council has been awarded £200,000 of funding from the Scottish Government’s Vacant and Derelict Land Fund to transform the site area behind the railway line into a vibrant community resource.
And members of the local community are being encouraged to get involved to ensure the success of the project.
