Glasgow approves City Centre Lanes strategy
March 22 2018
Part of a wider initiative to reimagine the city centre the project aims to improve the city centre as a place in which people are encouraged to live and linger through a concerted programme of landscaping and public realm work.
This will help deal with problems associated with anti-social behaviour, unauthorised parking and refuse collection by encouraging shops, restaurants and bars to colonise back streets spanning seven target areas at Sauchiehall, Bath, Renfield and Tontine Lanes as well as around the Willow Tearooms extension, Princes Court and Garnethill.
Councillor Kenny McLean, city convener for neighbourhoods, housing and public realm at Glasgow City Council, said: “The approval of the City Centre Lane Strategy allows us to begin work with our partners that will make the most of what is an unrealised asset for the city. The regeneration of the area’s lanes will bring new life to the city, and deliver cultural, economic and social benefits for Glasgow.”
