GCC consider Hamiltonhill canal quarter framework
November 15 2016
Prepared by Urban Design consultants LUC on behalf of Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership the document builds on feedback gleaned from a charrette process titled ‘Glasgow’s Inner City Village: Tranquil Heart, Vibrant Fringe’.
Spanning six key themes this looked at creating a linear park in parallel with the canal; offering improved pedestrian and cycle links; new housing provision; passive observation; heritage and culture and promotion of healthy lifestyles.
Councillor George Redmond, executive member for jobs, business and investment said: “The regeneration of this part of the canal corridor, including Hamiltonhill and parts of Woodside and Firhill, is key to the wider development of the area. This framework will help deliver this very exciting transformation, unlocking the potential of a district of Glasgow that will be home to new housing, businesses and visitor attractions.”
The framework prioritises development of brownfield land to provide flood protection, housing and improved connections; specifically, restoration of canalside buildings at Applecross Basin, a canal bridge connecting Garscube Road with the Claypits Local Nature Reserve and the housing-led regeneration of Hamiltonhill masterminded by Collective Architecture.
