New_GoWell_Logo_300dpi_thumbDo you live in Scotstoun? A student from Glasgow University is looking for residents who would be willing to share their views of their neighbourhood as part of their dissertation for a postgraduate degree in City and Regional Planning at the University of Glasgow.

They are researching whether public open space help to create a sense of community inĀ regeneration neighbourhoods?

They will be running focus groups in the neighbourhood during July and are looking for four to six participants for each group. The focus group will be a discussion and would be suited to community groups or groups of friends and neighbours. During the discussion you will be asked a series of questions relating to the subject of regeneration and the use of public space in the Scotstoun area.

Refreshments will be provided and the discussion will take no more than one hour. Your name and details identifying you will be kept confidential. If you would like to take part, please contact Nicola Arnott by email at or by mobile on 07805 654211 or download the flyer. Focus groups Scotstoun
