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.
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.
