A VISION FOR LANARK (2020-2030)

A partnership between Lanark Community Development Trust, Discover Lanark (Business Improvement District company), New Lanark Trust and the Scottish Wildlife Trust (Falls of Clyde Reserve) has agreed to prepare a strategy for the future development of the historic burgh of Lanark along with the special places of New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde.

Our consultants, CMC Associates, have prepared a discussion report which highlights the area’s heritage assets but also the potential to turn these to far greater advantage for the community, its identity and its economy. Click here to download a copy of the report.

We are now asking ALL residents (young and old) and businesses in the town and its surrounding area to take 5 MINUTES to answer some simple questions on this form about your views on the town, its current state and opportunities for its future. If you wish, you may take more time to add comments at the end.
