SOS - Save our Shotts

This petition had 1,633 supporters

We strongly oppose all cuts within the Fortissat Ward. For too long the local authority services in Shotts have been eroded, with hours cut in our First Stop Shop, Municipal Bank, and the closure of our Registry and Social Work offices.

We have some of the most deprived areas in North Lanarkshire with obesity on the rise, where is the sense in cutting hours at our Leisure Centre when the pool needs to be continually heated. Would it not be more prudent to keep the centre open to gain further revenue through the doors?  We also have two Olympic Youth medalists who regularly train in our pool, the proposed changes to the opening times would prevent them from training.

Shotts is ideally placed as a commuter town with strong transport links including a newly upgraded high speed railway being delivered early 2019. We ask that NLC invest in our town rather than continually cutting away at our services. Not so long back there was talk of a new community hub similar to the Houldsworth Centre being built in Shotts, why has no action been taken on this. 

There are eight towns in North Lanarkshire however NLC only seem to recognise and invest in seven of them!!
