Following the announcement that we had been successful in being awarded funding for our Cycling Village proposal, we held our inception meeting with Glasgow City Council and Sustrans on the 24th October 2019. The meeting provided an opportunity for all parties to determine the projects governance, whilst allowing our team the opportunity to receive panel feedback from our pitch in June 2019.
Moving forward, the project governance will be split into two parts:
Glasgow City Council as Roads Authority will take the lead on the infrastructure design. The Cycling Village team will undertake public consultations to provide a design brief to Glasgow City Council for each area receiving public realm interventions. Following the creation of each design Glasgow City Council will undertake the formal public consultation.
The Cycling Village team will take the lead on the behaviour change element of the project. In order to maximise the funds available and to ensure the longevity of the project, the Community Council will create a charity, ‘The Yorkhill & Kelvingrove Development Trust‘. Working collaboratively with other partners we hope to grow and pool our funding to ensure we can support the community over the coming years.
