Newton Mearns Town Centre

The Avenue shopping centre in Newton Mearns

The Council are working closely with the Management team in the Avenue and are a member of the Newton Mearns Town Centre Partnership. The partnership involves the Avenue management, the Council and East Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce.

Newton Mearns town centre serves as a local convenience centre focused primarily on local customers and is important to the Eastwood side of East Renfrewshire. The centre is considered to have a strong and loyal customer base but it faces increased competition, particularly from the closely located Silverburn Shopping Centre.

The Avenue is well supported locally and with new development proposed in Maidenhill, Newton Mearns, local population will increase and the vitality and attractiveness of the centre is also likely to increase. The centre is currently stable and the council's role will largely be in supporting and monitoring Newton Mearns town centre as little intervention is currently required.
