What do we want to know?

A ‘citywide conversation’ is currently underway regarding Glasgow’s George Square asking ‘is it time for change?’

The work has been commissioned by the City Council's City Centre Regeneration Team in Development and Regeneration Services, and is being led by Icecream Architecture.

While George Square is a familiar landmark, the way it’s used has been shaped by generations of Glaswegians. Now it’s our turn! The citywide conversation looks to find out what place George Square has in Glasgow today and how it should be used in the future. We’ll never know unless we talk honestly about how we think and feel, and also listen to what our fellow Glaswegians have to say.

The citywide conversation is open for everyone to join and you can get involved here (www.george-square.com).

Click for more detail Draft Newlands Conservation Area Appraisal Development and Regeneration Services 18 Sep 2019 28 Oct 2019
What do we want to know?

Newlands Conservation Area was originally designated in 1985. 

Glasgow City Council, as Planning Authority, has a duty to preserve and enhance the character and appearance of conservation areas and from time to time prepare and publish proposals for doing so.  Part of this process involves the preparation of a ‘Conservation Area Appraisal’. 

The City Council has prepared a Draft Conservation Area Appraisal for Newlands Conservation Area.  The document provides an opportunity to review the existing conservation area, identifying:

•  the key features which contribute positively to the areas unique character,

•  the challenges, which need to be addressed in order to protect its special architectural and historic interest,  

•  review existing conservation area boundaries and suggest changes where appropriate; and

•  identify opportunities for the preservation and enhancement of the conservation area

Residents, property owners and local groups have a major role to play in the preparation of conservation area appraisals and their involvement and support is fundamental to the success of the whole process.

The document is available to view on the Council’s website at:

http://www.glasgow.gov.uk

Paper copies will also been deposited at local libraries and the Councils’ DRS enquiries desk at 231 George Street, Glasgow G1 1QU.

Comments may be e-mailed to appraisal@drs.glasgow.gov.uk, to be received by 28th October 2019

What do we want to know?

Part 8 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 aims to "increase transparency about Common Good assets and community involvement in decisions taken about their identification, use and disposal".

The Act places new duties on the council in relation to common good property:-

  • Section 102 of the Act places a duty on the council to establish and maintain, after consultation, a register of property which is held by it as part of the common good.
  • Section 104 imposes the requirement for public consultation before the disposal or change of use of a common good property.

Statutory guidance (https://www.gov.scot/publications/community-empowerment-common-good-property-guidance-local-authorities/) published by the Scottish Government sets out the procedure for establishing the register, and for subsequent consultations on the use or disposal of common good land.

We have published our draft Register and would like your comments on the register, for example, to suggest that a property should be removed or added.
