What is Neighbourhood Management?
Neighbourood Management is a process where local communities and agencies, such as Glasgow City Council, the police, and local housing associations, work together to improve local public services by making decisions based on evidence and the views of the local people who live in the area.

This report summarises what people in the East Centre ward area said about their local neighbourhood, what they liked about living there and what they’d like to improve.
