Following our poll a few weeks ago regarding proposals for renovating or rebuilding Auchentibber War Memorial, the results are now in.
We’ve written up a 2 page report which is available upon request. 144 people took part, so we’d like to say thanks for their time and valuable input.
There was very little support for rebuilding the monument elsewhere in Auchentibber, or at the Crematorium. Public opinion, however quite categorically prefers renovating and repairing the monument where it currently stands.
Recommendations to South Lanarkshire Council
Blantyre Telegraph recommends, following gauging the public opinion of 144 people of all ages, that Auchentibber War Memorial should be renovated to a high standard (ideally using grant monies) at the current site where it stands, in-situ at Parkneuk Road, Auchentibber, High Blantyre. If possible to address traffic and safety concerns as part of the renovation and repair consideration. A further recommendation may be for SLC to poll Auchentibber residents specifically for their input.
Copies of the results and report have now been provided to all stakeholders, for consideration of the next step.
