Cumbernauld Is No Carbuncle

Cumbernauld has yet again been nominated as “Plook On A Plinth” for Urban Realm magazine’s Carbuncle Awards. Local people have reacted angrily to this, the result of one single nomination, with some calling for the awards to be scrapped entirely. Cumbernauld’s repeated Beautiful Scotland award wins, along with the continuing hard work of dedicated local individuals and community organisations to improve our town, are just a few of the many reasons why Cumbernauld is thoroughly undeserving of this dubious accolade. Cumbernauld Environmental Society has written to John Glenday, Editor of Urban Realm magazine, to outline our objection to Cumbernauld’s nomination and detailing just some of the reasons why the Carbuncle Award should not be presented to our town.
