Craigmarloch Stables Consultation

We are looking for your ideas and opinions for the redevelopment of Craigmarloch Stables

Craigmarloch stables was built in the early 19th century as a staging post for the teams of horses that pulled the swift passenger boats along the Forth & Clyde Canal. Since the birth of rail travel and the decline of the waterways, the building has fallen into disuse and ruin, and is now a shell with no roof. The intention of the consultation is to share ideas on how this historic building can be brought back to life through renovation and re-use, and how an area that was historically a hub of activity on the canal can be revitalised.  

The project team has already investigated a number of different potential uses for the building by considering the location, the suitability of the site and stables building, and the business cases for each. However we are looking for the thoughts and opinions of the local community and every idea is valuable.  

The stables are included as a key site in the pdf icon Kilsyth and Kelvin Valley Framework and Action Plan 2018 [5Mb] and the Forth and Clyde Canal is classified as a Tourism Development Area in North Lanarkshire Council's Local Development Plan. 

Community workshops focused on finding a future for the stables took place in January 2020, at the Garrell Vale Community Centre.  This provided an opportunity for local residents to feedback on the proposals for developing the site.  We are keen to obtain further feedback on these pdf icon proposals [4Mb] and have created an online survey to capture these.  The online survey can be found here, and will be available until Sunday 9 February 2020.
