East Renfrewshire Council is celebrating the completion of ten new commercial units at Crossmill Business Park in Barrhead.

This is the first infrastructure project to be completed as part of the £1.13 billion Glasgow City Region City Deal.

This marks a key milestone for the City Deal and demonstrates the ambition of supporting business growth and creating employment opportunities.

Convener for infrastructure and sustainable growth Cllr Tony Buchanan commented: “City Deal is great news for East Renfrewshire. Our ambitious vision for the future development of the area has been enhanced and accelerated thanks to our £44 million City Deal investment.

“Flexible commercial units are now open for business at Crossmill Business Park and a 17-acre former factory site has been prepared for private investment, supporting business growth and providing employment opportunities.

“We are delighted to have two thriving local businesses already set to move in and these units will provide the additional space needed to further their expansion plans.”
