One Glasgow area will be transformed following an impressive £14.98million cash boost.

We previously reported that Drumchapel was set to be awarded the funding.

Now, at a council meeting, officials agreed to accept the award from the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund. 

The money will help deliver new housing and revamp the town centre, including a new public plaza and an improved transport network with better walking and cycling routes.

It will also include enhanced community facilities, new green space and street furniture and work to address local flooding issues.

The local authority will provide a further £1.664m in funding, bringing the total project cost to £16.644m.

Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said the regeneration of Drumchapel had been a top priority when identifying projects for Levelling Up support. 

She said: “I’m delighted that having worked hard to secure this funding the long-overdue regeneration of Drumchapel town centre will soon be going ahead.

"An investment of this scale in a community like Drumchapel is hugely significant and the residents deserve nothing less.

“Drumchapel’s town centre is the heart of the local community. It’s relied upon by many for shopping and vital services.

"The people of Drumchapel have every right to expect that their town centre meets their needs and aspirations for a vibrant and healthy environment.

“Working with the community, council officers put forward an extremely strong case for investment for Drumchapel and I’m delighted this has been borne out by the award of the funding.”
