Regeneration to help Glasgow ‘thrive as great city’

A consultation on the future of Glasgow has been launched to help it “thrive as a great European city”.

The city council has appointed a team to help prepare an ambitious regeneration action plan for Cowcaddens, Learning Quarter, Merchant City and Townhead.

Each area will have its own ten-year vision to guide future development.

Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “The district regeneration frameworks for the city centre will play a key role in creating a city centre fit to meet the challenges now in front of us.

“By taking part in this consultation, everyone with a stake in these four neighbourhoods can join with the council and our expert project team can help shape a city centre that is sustainable, attractive and liveable.”

Graham Ross, architect and urban planner at Austin-Smith:Lord – part of the project team – said: “We’re looking for ideas, big and small, to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives, works, learns or visits here.

“It’s vital that we tap into local wisdom and knowledge so we can capture the essence of the issues needing attention and set a positive agenda for regeneration and recovery the next ten years.

“We want anyone passionate about Glasgow to share ideas about how to enhance our everyday experiences of these districts, and help set future ambitions that will enable Glasgow to thrive as a great European city.”
