Councillor Andrew Polson, Joint Leader of the Council, said: "Town centres are constantly changing, whether it’s due to the effects ofinternet shopping or COVID-19. We’ve secured funding to make improvements in Bishopbriggs as part of the Council's £34.88 million City Deal project but to maximise that investment we need your help."

Councillor Vaughan Moody, Joint Leader of the Council, added: "We want to know more about where you go in the town centre, how and why you use it, and what changes you would like to see."

The City Deal project - in conjunction with Strathclyde Partnership forTransport and Glasgow City Council - will see an integrated approach to improve infrastructure within East Dunbartonshire and the north of Glasgow.

There will be three main elements - Bishopbriggs Town Centre Regeneration, Delivery of Phase 5 of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road and Masterplan for Westerhill, and Improvements to the A803 Route Corridor.
