The Regeneration Framework for this District was approved in 2016. Since then a great deal of work has been done to get the Avenues project on Sauchiehall Street started and delivered. We expect this work will be complete early in the New Year.
The Framework identified a number of projects from big to small. The Avenues is obviously a big project. The impact that smaller projects have should not be underestimated so we are pleased to confirm that work on the upgrade of Garnethill Park will start in early November and be complete in the middle of December.
To make sure that we maintain the momentum we are working to secure additional resources to make sure that other small and medium-sized projects are delivered in the next few months.
In the meantime, another initiative introduced as part of the City Centre Strategy is the Lane Activation Fund and while this open to anyone there are particular opportunities in the lanes of the Sauchiehall and Garnethill.
The area has been through some particularly difficult times and we will work with the community and businesses to see if there are any ways that we can support them.
