The Broomielaw District Regeneration Framework (BDRF) was approved by the City Administration Council Committee on 7th February 2019 and will now proceed to public consultation. The public consultation will run for eight weeks from 8 February to 5 April 2019.
The BDRF was commissioned as a group of four DRFs in 2017, incorporating the Blythswood, Central and St Enoch districts in addition to Broomielaw. As with the Sauchiehall and Garnethill District Regeneration Framework, the process built on Town Centre First principles, and has integrated spatial planning and placemaking objectives with operational and environmental enhancements. Here is a short information video about the DFR:
Broomielaw DRF has been developed collaboratively by a multi-disciplinary team led by Austin Smith Lord and MVRDV, working with the local community, stakeholders and organisations. The consultation period will offer further opportunity for local parties to contribute to this process. The final BDRF and Action Plan will evolve after the consultation period has concluded on 5 April 2019.

The plans for Broomielaw are ambitious and aspirational with a significant number of recommendations and proposals. Resource constraints will doubtless limit the full range of actions so it will be essential to have an understanding of stakeholder priorities through this consultation before we finalise the delivery plan.
The remaining three DRFs from this group will be produced incrementally during 2019-20. The final four city centre DRFs (Townhead, Cowcaddens, Merchant City and the Learning Quarter) are likely to be commissioned in 2019/20.
We are looking forward to your comments on the report; an online survey is available here.
