Glasgow seeks guidance on future direction of travel

Glasgow City Council is inviting its citizens to share their views on the future shape of the city by giving their views on a new development plan.

To communicate the long-term regeneration strategy a story map has been created to complement a variety of surveys, activities and offline events to drum up interest.

Councillor Kenny McLean said: “The City Development Plan provides the vision for how land should be used in Glasgow, so this consultation provides the opportunity for anyone interested in helping shape that future development to do so.”

Looking ahead to the next 20 years the plan will consider how to promote development that addresses the climate emergency and nature crisis as well as initiatives such as Fastlink, an upgrade of the Clyde Walkway and a potential high-speed rail terminus at Central or a realigned High Street station.

Open until 27 September the results of the survey will be used to inform evolving strategies.

We need private money. Real money. Stop focusing constantly on places like Govan and it’s social needs. No more tax payer funded vanity projects. Real money makes real jobs.

#2 Awrite Mr Mclandgrab, 'we' need ye tae settle... the fewer private fingers in oor public affairs, especially aroond Land and how Land should be used/developed, the better. Scot'land' has been stolen enough. I really dinnae see how improving public transport around the Clyde is a 'vanity project'... a move towards utilising the Clyde for better public transport is a long overdue endeavour. Tax the profiteering private companies and individuals through their noses and spend their 'real' money (whatever that is...) how we like and on as many public projects as possible.

If we are to plan for large capital infrastructure projects like Glasgow Metro, High Speed Rail Terminus we need to look at protections for exisiting sites (like Glasgow's disused tunnel and railline assets) as well as those sites that need to be acquired and assembled. No easy feat legally or for the planning system but needs to happen now if we are serious about it.
It is also about time that treat neighbourhood centres properly and give them priority (that they're supposed to have already). No more big box retail, no more drive throughs and no more zoned mono-use master plans.
