How We Started

Carluke is an old mining town that has developed into a commuter town for people working in Glasgow, Edinburgh and other parts of Lanarkshire. Its employment base is limited but there are several small industrial estates with the potential for development. The Trust was established to act as the driver for community based regeneration within the town and also to design and seek funding for environmental projects. Following a series of consultation exercises a development plan was agreed and published in 2000. The Trust is pursuing environmental projects, organises town events, contributes to town management and development, and markets Carluke to residents and visitors.

What We Do

We have a full time Development Manager based in the Trust offices within our local Carluke Business Centre.     The Trust is currently focusing during 2014/15 on the regeneration of the following local assets:

Commonty - 33 acres of land outside Carluke purchased by the Trust.

High Mill - Local mill, we have ambitious plans for the regeneration of our local Mill into a viable social enterprise and focal point for the town. 

Old Wishaw Road - local countryside route and environmental asset between Carluke, Law and Wishaw requires upgrading to encourage further use by all aspects of our community. 

We do have regular community events across the year ; local fun run and the Carluke Ham and Jam Festival in October.
