A FINAL public consultation to discuss how Glasgow City Council intend to transform six different areas is to be launched before the proposals are adopted.

In March 2017, the Glasgow City Development Plan was created and highlighted ways to draw investment to the local authority over the next ten years which would make Glasgow a more successful place to live for residents, workers and visitors.

The council developed six strategic development frameworks (SDFs) for the City Centre, Glasgow North, Govan/Partick Greater Easterhouse, Inner East and the River Clyde development corridor.

Once adopted the SDFs will act as a guide to future regeneration, development and investment decisions in these areas.

They will provide core information to guide the development of future business cases, funding bids and briefs for more detailed masterplans.

The River Corridor, Govan-Partick and most recently, the City Centre SDF are now complete and, following submission to the Scottish Government, have been adopted as statutory supplementary guidance to the city development plan.

The next SDFs to be delivered will be the Glasgow North and Inner East SDFs. External consultation on the Glasgow North SDF took place between October 2020 and January 2021 where over 50 representations were received.

Glasgow City Council’s proposed vision for the Inner East will become a series of interconnected walkable and liveable neighbourhoods, creating a vibrant, inclusive, liveable and well-connected people friendly place. It will also connect disconnected parts of the East End to the city centre.

It will be a city district that is; climate resilient; fosters creativity and opportunity; promotes social cohesion, health and wellbeing and economic prosperity.

Prior to adoption, the council is required to carry out public consultation on each SDF. An update will be presented before councillors in due course.
