Glasgow’s city centre offers residents and visitors an exciting mix of shopping, restaurants, night-life, theatres, galleries and much more. There will be lots of opportunities as people and businesses in the city centre take advantage of the ever-increasing pace of change in the way we live, shop, work and play. The city centre, which accounts for 34% of Glasgow’s output, will continue to provide opportunities to make the city centre a place where more people want to live.
Some of the opportunities are familiar, how to maximise vacant sites, empty shops and buildings, underused upper floors, underused plots of land, how to improve the look and feel of the city centre including traffic and emissions.
The City Centre is made up of nine distinct districts, and we will produce District Framework reports for each of them.
