Community consultation events

To help us achieve a strong environmental legacy from the Games and importantly, one that has the backing and support of Glasgow’s citizens, we need your help. We are holding community consultation events across Glasgow to present the SEA to you, and to provide you with an opportunity to highlight the environmental issues of importance to you and your community. We would greatly value your input into this as your comments and suggestions will help us to shape the Games’ environmental legacy and prioritise which SEA recommendations will be taken forward. These sessions will be focussed on environmental issues only, other issues have already been considered through the Health Impact Assessment, Transport Strategic Plan and similar studies.
