Cumbernauld town centre set for major transformation
North Lanarkshire Council has confirmed an agreement to purchase The Centre Cumbernauld as part of its plans for a major redevelopment of the town.
The Centre Cumbernauld was built in the late 1960s as part of the new town development. It is expected to be replaced with a new town hub that will include schools, leisure facilities, office space and a new health centre.
Councillor Jim Logue, Leader of North Lanarkshire Council, said: “The acquisition of The Centre Cumbernauld is an extremely significant part of the town vision for Cumbernauld and would represent a huge step forward in the regeneration of the town.
“While the building represented the future in the 1960s, it is clear that it does not fit with residents’ vision of what they need from a modern town centre.
“We are absolutely committed to ensuring that Cumbernauld – and all the towns in North Lanarkshire – is a vibrant, living town and our overall investment in town centres is about ensuring a sustainable future.”
