As part of the Central Station Action Plan (CSAP) a stakeholder engagement event took place in The Arches on Wednesday 23 October 2019. Arranged as a drop-in style event, it ran from 10:00 to 16:00 to enable local stakeholders to engage with GCC officers and representatives of the other project partner organisations.
The occasion provided an opportunity for project officers to update local stakeholders on the actions which are already being undertaken in the area as well as giving an overview of those initiatives and schemes still to take place – such as the Argyle Street Avenue and the proposed public consultation of the Central District Regeneration Framework.
More importantly, local traders and residents told us about their concerns and what they felt to be the most pressing issues affecting the Action Plan area. All of this information was collected and will inform the future shape of the project. In particular, a number of critical concerns were raised and steps are currently being taken to address them as a matter of urgency.
We would like to thank everyone who took time out of their busy day and participated in this event whilst providing their thoughts, comments and suggestions. We understand the impact which local issues can have and we very much appreciate the involvement demonstrated by the local community. We remain committed to doing as much as we can to bring about improvements and will continue to provide updates regarding the actions being progressed through the CSAP and other associated projects. The PowerPoint presentation arising from the event can be downloaded here.
