Residents are being offered a chance to find out more about proposals for a Community Hub in Milngavie at a public event.
This will be the latest in the Council’s network of Hubs across East Dunbartonshire following openings in Kirkintilloch, Lennoxtown and Bearsden, with Bishopbriggs due early next year.
Four information sessions are being held at Milngavie Town Hall on Thursday 7 December to give people a chance to learn more and have their own say about the types of Council services that will be delivered from the facility.
The sessions will be supported by key members of the project team and will include short presentations at 2pm, 3.30pm, 6pm and 7.30pm which will give an overview of the Council’s approach to developing Community Hubs and an indicative timescale for the next steps in the process.
They will be followed by an opportunity for people to ask questions and give their feedback to help inform the early development of the new facility.
Councillor Gordan Low, Leader of East Dunbartonshire Council, said, "We have introduced these sessions to get people involved at an early stage of the project.
“We’ve already had preliminary discussions with a range of potential partners in line with the Council’s principles of delivering maximum efficiency by bringing together public services as part of any Community Hub development.
“This is an excellent opportunity for you to find out more about this process and to let us know what services you want to see delivered from the Hub.
"We are keen to engage with as many people and community groups as possible while we work towards making this new facility a reality and there will be a chance for people to sign up to be part of our Champions Group as the project develops.
"The development of a Community Hub will see major investment by the Council in Milngavie and I would encourage people to come along to help inform the development process.”
Community Hubs are a key aspect of the Council’s programme to continue to deliver its ‘click, call, come in’ approach to customer services locally throughout East Dunbartonshire. The first Hub facility was opened at the William Patrick Library building in Kirkintilloch in August 2012 and has seen increased visitor numbers since its introduction.
