How We Started

The New Cumnock Liaison Group (NCLG) the forerunner of "Improving New Cumnock" was established in 2007 to facilitate the sustainable regeneration and economic development of New Cumnock. It associates itself with New Cumnock Community Council (NCCC), East Ayrshire Council (EAC) and East Ayrshire Coalfield Environment Initiative (CEI), Abellio ScotRail, Barr Environmental, The Great Steward of Scotland to make New Cumnock a better place in which to live and visit.

The NCLG operated small sub-groups to help progress a wide range of projects covering topics such as:

  • derelict /disused buildings,
  • sustainable energy,
  • leisure pursuits and
  • heritage. The NCLG believed that through making our heritage more participative and visible to the wider community and visitors alike can influence a positive change in the perception of New Cumnock.

In particular, the NCLG was mindful of the opportunity to actively engage our young citizens in our heritage in support of the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’.
