Liveable Neighbourhood Consultation

Glasgow's Liveable Neighbourhoods
Glasgow’s Liveable Neighbourhoods

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.

Participation is invited at the following Community Consultation events:

  • Riddrie and Carntyne – 2nd December 11.00 am to 5.00pm at Carntyne Parish Church.
  • Haghill – 8th December 9.00 am to 1.00pm at Bluevale Community Hall.
  • Dennistoun – 17th December 11.00 am to 5.00pm at Reidvale Centre.
  • TBC – mid-January 2022 at Cranhill Development Trust.

Between the Community Consultations and a Neighbourhood Consultation in late Spring, there is an aim to produce a Story Book which will travel between schools and libraries in the Neighbourhood, the format of which will depend on the outcomes from the Community Consultations.

To register interest, or if you have any questions, send an email noting your name and choice of event (plus organisation details, if applicable) to Chris Stewart of Collective Architecture via c.stewart@collectivearchitecture.co.uk.

You can read about the project at dennistountocranhillln.commonplace.is and add pins on a map to create a list of physical interventions that would help improve our neighbourhood and help reduce the city’s dependency on motor vehicles.

You can also contribute by completing the Place Standard survey which can be found at placestandard.scot/start/dennistoun-to-cranhill. This tool is used to assess the quality of a place. It consists of 14 questions which cover both physical elements and social aspects. There are prompts to help you answer the questions. At the end of the set of questions, you will receive your own summary in the form of a shape or compass diagram that can be downloaded as a pdf.

Active Travel Strategy Consultation

Active Travel Strategy 2022-2031 Draft
Active Travel Strategy 2022-2031 Draft

Consultation open until Monday 22nd November 2021.

Glasgow City Council is delivering an Active Travel Strategy, designed to achieve significant modal shift across the city to walking, wheeling and cycling. It is intended to supersede the existing Strategic Plan for Cycling 2016-2025.

The strategy is a recognition of the positive impact that transport, and active travel in particular, can make towards city’s wider policy objectives on Climate and the Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Inclusion and Equality and Wealth and Inclusive Growth. The public conversation in Autumn 2020 directly informed the policies and actions proposed in this draft strategy.

GCC are surveying to allow people to provide feedback on the proposed policies and actions as well as identify any gaps.

The proposed City Network map can be viewed and commented on via glasgowcitynetwork.commonplace.is – drop a pin on the map and share your experience of that route or street, or comment on what would improve this network.
