Glasgow’s Liveable Neighbourhoods (LNs) are intended to transform streets into safer, more attractive spaces where everyday needs can be met locally. They are to be accessible and healthy places that allow people of all ages and abilities to play and socialise outdoors in their local area. They will prioritise people travelling actively and by public transport. They are focussed on supporting local businesses.
Dennistoun is in the first tranche of this programme of projects being introduced across Glasgow, blending the 20-minute neighbourhood concept with the place principle to respond to the current environmental, social, health and economic challenges the city faces.
Initial Liveable Neighbourhood information about the community consultation process so far can be found on DCC here.
