A PLAN to guide the development of North Glasgow over the next 30 years has been unveiled.

Glasgow City Council has approved the next step in the delivery of the North Glasgow Strategic Development Framework (SDF) - a document that will guide the regeneration of the area.

It outlines the area’s key priorities, design principles, connections and strategic relationships.

Major projects that will deliver more than 3,000 homes over the next decade, include the Sighthill and Maryhill Transformational Regeneration Areas, the Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership, and the regeneration of Cowlairs, Dundashill, Hamiltonhill and the former Ruchill Hospital site.

The draft SDF identified the vision for North Glasgow - that the area becomes a healthy and high-quality place in which to live and work.

A 10-week consultation on the document will begin on October 1, allowing people, organisations and other stakeholders in the area the opportunity to help shape the final document.

Councillor Kenny McLean, city convener for neighbourhoods, housing and public realm at Glasgow City Council, said: “This framework sets out a vision for the future development of North Glasgow, one which will help unlock the huge and unfulfilled potential of this part of the city.

“In recent years, the renewal of areas such as Sighthill and the canal corridor has shown that North Glasgow offers enormous economic, environmental, cultural and social assets and opportunities.

“With the input of local people and organisations, we can look forward to the final version of the framework guiding the future development of North Glasgow in a way that benefits everyone in the area.”

Within the document, desired outcomes for the area include ‘A Working North’ - attractive and accessible business locations that support enterprise, employment and economic inclusion; A Liveable North - thriving, sustainable neighbourhoods that support healthy living; A Connected North - well-connected neighbourhoods with excellent public transport, walking and cycling links to improve accessibility and reduce car use; and A Green North - an accessible and multi-functional green network where nature and communities can flourish.
