Cycle Village Proposal Consultation Events

Cycle Village

7th May 2018

Our vision for Yorkhill, Kelvingrove and Finnieston is that our streets will be a safe and attractive place for visitors and residents to discover and enjoy; where the needs of pedestrians and cyclists are considered a priority, where people are able to move around easily between their homes, transport hubs, community facilities and local businesses.

We strongly believe our residents and visitors should be able to access all of our services and attractions, through a series of connected, protected cycle lanes, which link to the national infrastructure.

To achieve this vision, we are pursuing ways to improve our streetscapes, to provide cycling facilities (including connections to promoted cycle routes), to assist navigation, to enhance our architectural heritage, and to introduce green elements to our local environment.

During April 2018 to March 2019, we will conduct a feasibility study to understand how cyclists navigate our community to identify new routes for infrastructure improvements. We want this to be cyclist led!

The initial public consultation will occur at ‘Bike for Good’, 65 Haugh Rd, Glasgow G3 8TX.
•Saturday 9th June -09:00 to 17:00
•Wednesday 13th June – 15:00 to 20:00.

We want to hear your views to help share our community, please come along!

Corunna Bowling Club Development

Corunna Bowling Club Development

7th May 2018

And so the fight to save a protected green space in our community begins.

As the original bowling club from 1860, this is protected Green Space through the City Council’s Development Plan and also the St Vincent Crescent Conservation Appraisal.

On the same day that the media reports parks and green spaces generate health benefits that would cost more than 34 billion pounds, developer Nixon Blue, wants to remove this from our community, for more flats!

The community must have the option to explore other green space uses for this site.

We fully expect Glasgow City Council Planning Department to abide by its own policies and refuse planning permission.
