The below queries were submitted by Dennistoun Community Council to George Gillespie (Executive Director, Neighbourhoods, Regeneration and Sustainability, Glasgow City Council) on 7th November 2022, copied to all Dennistoun Ward and Calton Ward Councillors (Anthony Carroll, Allan Casey, Elaine McDougall, Greg Hepburn, Cecilia O’Lone, Linda Pike, and George Redmond).
Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) welcomes the principles and proposals of the GCC Connecting Communities Project and the Liveable Neighbourhood (LN) plan. DCC and its Community Councillors (CCllrs) have enthusiastically promoted and engaged with the project at all stages of consultation to date.
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.

A drop-in event has been organised for Thursday 13th October between 10:00am and 4:00pm at the Reidvale Centre, 13 Whitevale Street, G31 1QW.
On 7 June 2022, Glasgow City Council (GCC) made the following announcement:
Options for a £23m package of investment in roads, lighting, footways, traffic signals and other vital infrastructure are being put before communities across Glasgow.
The Neighbourhood Infrastructure Improvement Fund will see £1m allocated for improvements in each of the city’s 23 council wards with community representatives having a direct say on how the money will be spent.
Detailed proposals that provide costings and specifications for potential work are being presented to Area Partnership committee for all wards and members of the committee will then help to determine the priorities for their area. Area Partnerships bring together elected members at local level, public and third sector organisations, community councils and other community representatives.
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.
Glasgow City Council (GCC) recently responded to the most recent query from Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) in an ongoing dialogue regarding various maintenance and streetscape issues in Dennistoun.
