MAPPING out the future for Lanark’s town centre was the aim behind a major gathering last week, hosted by the area’s Labour regional MSP Claudia Beamish.

On a national basis, her party is formulating its new high street regeneration policy to address the decline in the traditional independent shopping sector; Labour claims that one in six of Scottish town centre shops is now closed.

Along with Claudia to meet Lanark business leaders, members of the voluntary sector and civic figures at a consultative meeting was Labour’s local government spokesperson Sarah Boyak.
