The Glasgow City Council reply below is in response to queries regarding the Liveable Neighbourhoods project, the Inner East Strategic Development Framework the Neighbourhood Infrastructure Improvement Fund, and Citizens’ Panels participatory funding arrangements, submitted by Dennistoun Community Council to the Director of GCC Neighbourhoods, Regeneration and Sustainability.
A PDF version of this submission is available here.
The below queries were submitted by Dennistoun Community Council to George Gillespie (Executive Director, Neighbourhoods, Regeneration and Sustainability, Glasgow City Council) on 7th November 2022, copied to all Dennistoun Ward and Calton Ward Councillors (Anthony Carroll, Allan Casey, Elaine McDougall, Greg Hepburn, Cecilia O’Lone, Linda Pike, and George Redmond).
Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) welcomes the principles and proposals of the GCC Connecting Communities Project and the Liveable Neighbourhood (LN) plan. DCC and its Community Councillors (CCllrs) have enthusiastically promoted and engaged with the project at all stages of consultation to date.
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.
At this time of year especially, everyone across Scotland is being encouraged to think ahead and be prepared for all kinds of winter weather. Whether it is at home, on the move, in the workplace, or in your community, we all need to consider the risk of severe weather.
