  • 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.
