Glasgow homes could be reassigned to North Lanarkshire Council

Cardowan boundaryA consultation is underway on proposals to assign the homes of a number of Glasgow residents to a different local authority.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland is conducting an administrative area review of the boundary between Glasgow City Council area and North Lanarkshire Council area at Cardowan, Stepps.

The review follows a number of requests from local residents to the east of Dewar Road, at Cardowan. The residents argued that they had stronger ties with the North Lanarkshire area and felt they were disadvantaged by being in a different council area from neighbours in the same development.

Public views on the proposals, which would affect 150 homes, are invited until 6 September 8.

The commission has proposed that the boundary be realigned at the southernmost edge of the newly-completed development.

Commission secretary, Isabel Drummond-Murray, said: “We are particularly keen to hear from those residents and electors affected by the proposed changes, but would welcome any interested parties’ views, whether in favour of the proposals or not.”

It expects to report its final recommendations to the Scottish Government later in 2017 or early 2018.
