What do we want to know?

In February 2019, the Council consulted with students, student housing providers, universities, elected members and community councils to solicit their perspectives on Student Accommodation in Glasgow. Following this event, the Council conducted research and analysis that has informed the drafting of revised guidance.  The Council has prepared this revised guidance with the intention to replace Section 2: Student Accommodation of SG10.

In order to make these revisions, The Council is required to publish the new guidance for a period of public consultation that permits all interested parties to make comments on the proposed guidance. Once the consultation ends the Council will review these representations and consider how these might alter the proposed guidance before presenting it to relevant Council Committees for their approval.

Subject to this approval, the Council will submit the revised guidance to the Scottish Government along with details of how the representations we received during the consultation have been taken into account. If the Scottish Government is satisfied that the revised guidance and consultation procedures have fulfilled statutory requirements, the Council will seek to adopt the guidance (subject to any further necessary Committee approval), thereby replacing Section 2: Student Accommodation of SG10.

What do we want to know?

In 2018, the Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a report highlighting urgent need for global action on climate change- one decade to act to avoid catastrophic changes.

In response to this stark warning, in 2019, Glasgow City Council set up a Climate Emergency Working Group, subsequently declaring Climate Emergency in the city.

The working group produced an independent expert report which made 61 recommendations, with a target for the city to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2030 at its heart.

The Climate Emergency Implementation Plan provides a response to the recommendations set out by the Climate Emergency Working Group. This sets a course for further action, and describes the means by which a city and its people will face the extraordinary challenges of the global climate emergency.

The City council are looking to undertake this consultation to engage and galvanise local organisations, businesses, communities and citizens to inform the development of the proposed Climate Emergency Implementation Plan (CEIP) and support its delivery.

This Conversation aims to raise awareness of the Climate Emergency and the key issues facing the city. This will include opportunities for early action on health & wellbeing, economy and natural environment.  This will also include, engaging Glaswegians in relation to Glasgow and Scotland’s emission reduction aims, low carbon behaviours and actions required at all levels to achieve these aims.

In particular, this process will allow the council to gather feedback on the plan’s proposed actions, thematic approach and level of ambition.

This will be undertaken through this survey and a series of public Climate Emergency Conversations, allowing all organisations and individuals in Glasgow to participate.

Following this climate emergency conversation, Glasgow City Council would be in a position to propose that the council approve and adopt the revised plan. Having support from our local communities, partners and stakeholders will embolden the city’s commitment to creating a climate smart place that works for all.
