A CUMBERNAULD councillor’s attempts to set up a working group to look at ways retailers can be brought to a struggling out-of-town retail park have been shut down.

Councillor Alan O’Brien raised a motion to find potential solutions to boost business at Westway Retail Development on Castlecary Road at the full council meeting last Thursday.

He argued that the development, which is privately owned, is operating at a fraction of its capacity, and is “dying on its feet”.
