Last call: Share your views and help us shape Glasgow City Centre!
The (Y)our City Centre project is creating ambitious plans for the core retail, business, civic and cultural heart of Scotland’s largest city. Glasgow’s city centre is a wonderful historical ensemble but it faces challenges including vacant buildings, under-utilised plots, changes in retail patterns, city centre living, public open space, safety and traffic.
A team led by MVRDV and Austin-Smith:Lord, supported by Space Syntax and a multidisciplinary team, has been commissioned by Glasgow City Council to embark on the development of District Regeneration Frameworks for four districts of Glasgow City Centre. With your help, these Regeneration Frameworks will look to create a clear urban structure that can fully realise Glasgow’s economic, cultural and social potential.
We would like your help identifying the challenges and opportunities for positive change in the next 10 years for these four districts; Broomielaw, St Enoch, Central and Blythswood. Your contributions will help shape the design of District Regeneration Frameworks for four districts of Glasgow City Centre. The Frameworks will lay out the plans and become supplementary planning guidance for Glasgow to fully realise its economic, cultural and social potential.
We want to hear the views of residents, businesses, landowners, students, visitors, those who live, work and play in the city centre. We are looking for small and big ideas and comments for the short term and long term. You can share (Y)our ideas via our online platform https://yourcitycentre.commonplace.is/
Alongside our on-street and workshop engagement we have had over 1100 contributions via the online platform, highlighting a wide range of issues and ideas. The online platform will be available until the end of August 2017, after which the comments will still be available for review. We look forward to collaborating with the Glaswegians on this exciting project, let us know (Y)our Ideas. Keep up to date with project via www.yourcitycentre.com, Facebook and Twitter.
If you have any immediate concerns about an issue in the city centre, please contact Glasgow City Council directly through the appropriate channels.
