New look for Motherwell site

Landscaping work to create an attractive public space on Windmillhill Street in Motherwell has been completed.

New paving, shrubs, trees and planters along with benches and street lighting have all be installed at the site outside the health centre.

The idea for the £73,000 project came from a public consultation, called a charrette, to identify ways of improving Motherwell town centre.

“This site is a busy area with people using the health centre as well as the local shops, and is one of the main routes into the town centre,” said Councillor Allan Graham, Convener of the Enterprise and Housing Committee.

“It was identified by residents and businesses during our consultation as needing improvement, and the work has transformed the site into a bright, pleasant area.”

The landscaping and paving works were carried out by Ground Control and the new lights installed by Amey. The project was delivered with funding generated from  the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Regeneration Fund and the council’s Local Development Programme.

Another project idea from the public consultation was to improve pedestrian signage in the town centre. The council has developed a proposal for fingerpost signs to direct people to local places of interest, public services and the parts of the town outside the central ring road. The signs will be installed later this year.
