On the 10th January 2017, Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Local Government and Housing, launched “Places, People and Planning: A consultation of the future of the Scottish Planning System”.
As Glasgow City Council develops the strategy for the city’s parks and green spaces across the next two years, they are looking to collect as many ideas and opinions, stories and suggestions as possible from park users to help shape their decisions.
Alexandra Park is one of Glasgow’s most significant parks, one of four designed by Sir Joseph Paxton. The 104 acre park takes its name from Princess Alexandra, the wife of the future King Edward VII, who officially opened the Park in 1870. The highest point of the park gives views north to Ben Lomond and south to Tinto hills. The City Improvement Trustees purchased the park in 1866 from Mr Walter Stewart of Haghill.
A community information event has been organised by Glasgow’s Poverty Leadership Panel and North East Area Delivery Group – organisations working to address poverty in the city.

Glasgow Council’s Development and Regeneration Services and Land and Environmental Services are carrying out a consultation on the draft Design Guide for New Residential Areas (NB: ~8MB PDF).
Glasgow, from its legacy as an industrial city, now has a problem with stalled sites across the city. Glasgow currently has more vacant sites than the rest of Scotland put together. Many of these sites may have plans for future development, however this can be anywhere from one to over ten years until development is scheduled to begin.
