Motion text

That this House welcomes the efforts of community activists in Shotts, North Lanarkshire in their campaign to see Shotts recognised as a town, rather than a collection of villages, by North Lanarkshire Council; acknowledges a petition nearly 1,000 signatures from local residents demanding the change; recognises that town status would allow community groups, businesses and the local authority to potentially lever new money to regenerate the town centre; and calls on North Lanarkshire Council to process the formalities as soon as possible so that Shotts can take its rightful place as a Scottish town.
