Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) took the opportunity to respond to consultation on Glasgow City Council’s (GCC) draft Local Development Plan (LDP). The LDP will guide future development and investment across Glasgow and, on completion (scheduled to be in 2014), will replace City Plan 2.

Glasgow’s proposed new approach looks to build on current strengths, as a place, so that the city can meet the challenges of both the post-recession period and a low carbon future. It has a greater focus on improving health and making Glasgow one of Europe’s most sustainable cities and is structured around six themes:
- The Sustainable Use Of Resources
- A Sustainable Strong Economy
- Sustainable Communities
- A Sustainable Environment
- Sustainable Connections
- Sustainable Design
DCC responded to almost all of the issues highlighted in the draft LDP and noted potential for using the finalised LDP to help ‘re-balance’ the city – with appropriate investment in Glasgow East and a need to support social and economic regeneration in the local area, opportunities around improving Dennistoun’s role as a local town centre, and the potential for improvements at Bellgrove station (linked to High Speed Rail, etc).
