Liveable Neighbourhood Consultation

Glasgow's Liveable Neighbourhoods
Glasgow’s Liveable Neighbourhoods

A Liveable Neighbourhood supports living, working, commerce and culture within its area; encourages sustainable transport to move around it; and has a distinct character. Liveable Neighbourhoods are also known as 20-minute neighbourhoods, where people can meet their everyday needs within a short walk or cycle.

Glasgow’s Liveable Neighbourhoods will be accessible and healthy places that allow people of all ages and abilities, to play and socialise outdoors in their local area, as well as making walking, cycling and public transport the first choice.

Liveable Neighbourhood Key Themes
Liveable Neighbourhood Key Themes

Collective Architecture and Arcadis are working with Glasgow City Council to develop the first tranche of Liveable Neighbourhoods for the City which includes the Dennistoun, Haghill, Riddrie, Carntyne and Cranhill area.

Active Travel Strategy Consultation

Active Travel Strategy 2022-2031 Draft
Active Travel Strategy 2022-2031 Draft

Consultation open until Monday 22nd November 2021 Sunday 5th December 2021.

Glasgow City Council is delivering an Active Travel Strategy, designed to achieve significant modal shift across the city to walking, wheeling and cycling. It is intended to supersede the existing Strategic Plan for Cycling 2016-2025.

The strategy is a recognition of the positive impact that transport, and active travel in particular, can make towards city’s wider policy objectives on Climate and the Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Inclusion and Equality and Wealth and Inclusive Growth. The public conversation in Autumn 2020 directly informed the policies and actions proposed in this draft strategy.

A PDF version of this consultation response is available here.

Vision and Principles

DCC welcomes the vision identified by the draft Inner East Strategic Development Framework (SDF):

  • That the Inner East will become a series of interconnected walkable and liveable neighbourhoods, creating a vibrant, inclusive, liveable and well-connected people friendly place.
  • That the Inner East will be a city district that is; climate resilient; fosters creativity and opportunity; promotes social cohesion, health and wellbeing and economic prosperity.
  • A transformation of Glasgow’s Inner East that focuses on people, place and planet to meet the demands of climate change.
  • To increase the East End’s appeal and attractiveness to future residents, investors, workers and visitors.

Response to Low Emission Zone Consultation

A PDF version of this consultation response is available here.

Whilst the coverage of the city centre Paramics model encompasses fully both proposed LEZ boundaries, the coverage does not include fully routes which non-compliant vehicles may be displaced onto and is apparently just moving the problem to residential areas near the eastern boundary.

Despite the consultation to understand the impacts of displaced vehicles within the city centre and wider area the assumption appears to be that by 2023 the majority of vehicles on the road needing access to the LEZ area will be compliant.
