GCC launch Shawbridge consultation

GCC launch Shawbridge consultation
Glasgow City Council is launching a public consultation over a 10 year plan to transform the Shawbridge district into a ‘village’.

Residents, reader and stakeholder opinions will be sought on the plan which marks a return to the pre war atmosphere of Pollokshaws that existed prior to the 1960’s development of high rise estates.

Many of these towers have already been demolished and with more set top follow the council are now moving to plan their replacements.

Benefiting from strong bus and rail links with plentiful natural amenity in the form of Pollok Park and the White Cart River it is thought the area could become an attractive enclave for south side residents.

It is intended to target the area toward families who would ordinarily migrate to the suburbs and entice suburbanites to return to the convenience of city living.

Interested parties are invited to complete an online questionnaire and an exhibition will be held at Pollokshaws Library and Learning Centre.
