This post is an update and reminder that you have until 5 pm on Friday 5 April to comment on the draft District Regeneration Framework for Broomielaw. Click here to see the plans and fill in the questionnaire.
As part of the evidence-based approach taken by the consultant team led by Austin Smith Lord and MVRDV over 5,000 people were asked about the challenges and opportunities to improve (Y)our City Centre. These ideas combined with other research, including what other European and World Cities have done well, was used to create a baseline for Glasgow. This combined evidence base was used to develop and prioritise a series of actions to improve the City Centre as a place to stay and live, to work and create, to visit and enjoy and to invest and build.
The District Regeneration Framework applies the evidence base to Broomielaw to deliver the same ambitions in a much more local context, for example, through commitments to develop a River Park and to animate the spaces along the riverside, under the M8 undercroft and to improve the public realm. There are seven themes in total with actions and investment aimed at encouraging a change in the area. We want the area to be more connected, to develop a distinct character and attract more people after office hours and at the weekend.
If you have 10 minutes, let us know what you think about the proposals and how we have prioritised them.
