Online consultation extended on potential options for Catherine Street


Monday, 19 February, 2018

Consultation on potential options for the junction of Catherine Street, Cowgate and Kerr Street in Kirkintilloch has been extended.

Drop-in events took place on 15, 16 and 17 February - with members of the public, community groups, businesses and other interested parties getting involved.

Don't worry if you were unable to attend in person - you can have a say online until Wednesday 28 February at - on two potential layouts to reintroduce traffic signals at the Catherine Street junction.

A rolling programme of improvement works took place in 2016/17 as part of the Kirkintilloch Town Centre Masterplan - which included a redesigned Catherine Street junction and the removal of traffic lights.

Elected members requested a report on potential future options for the junction and in November 2017 decided to remit officers to progress consultations with internal, external and community stakeholders.

This is in addition to a wider process of engagement and information-gathering - designed to improve Kirkintilloch - in partnership with the community.

Thomas Glen, Depute Chief Executive - Place, Neighbourhood & Corporate Assets, said, "I hope as many people as possible can take part and give us their views on potential options for the junction. All of the feedback will be used to inform future decisions on the town centre.

"Whether you live or work in Kirkintilloch - or are a regular visitor - we want to hear your views."
