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.
