In Autumn 2016 the Council commissioned EKOS Consultants to undertake a Community Placemaking exercise for Victoria Park to find a way forward together in collaboration with the stakeholders and community representatives of the surrounding areas of the park.

The placemaking exercise involved a series of community events and meetings and concluded in March 2017 when the consultants produced a draft Action Plan and draft Strategic Development Plan for the Park.

At this time it was unclear how things would progress and so DRCET offered to facilitate a further series of meetings of the community stakeholders and representatives to consider the two draft plans. This offer was accepted by those that had been involved with the Placemaking exercise and the Victoria Park Working Group was established. The list of organisations involved is shown below.

Following the discussions of the Working Group it was agreed, as per the findings of the Placemaking exercise, that a new organisation be set up to take forward the delivery of the Strategic Development Plan. More information about this will be available in due course.

All the reports and papers from the Community Placemaking exercise and the Working Group meeting notes are available on the Council website.

The newly built Broomhill Primary School will have a public open day on from midday to 730pm on Wednesday 17 January 2018.

The open day is a chance for parents, carers and local residents to have a look inside the new school.

With regards travel to school, which was an issue raised at our School Run Summit, in a recent letter the Parent Council stated, “While we understand that some pupils may require to be driven to school, Broomhill Parent Council, Broomhill Community Council and the Broomhill Primary School Management Team are keen to encourage as many pupils to travel actively to school as often as possible. This could be on foot, on a scooter or skates, by bike, or by ‘park and stride’ where the pupils are driven for part of the journey but walk the last section to school.”

The new school will open to pupils on Wednesday 24 January.

Most of the surgeries take place in public places such as schools and community centres. Click on the links below for details of your local Councillor’s surgeries.

Ward 12 Victoria Park (made up of Whiteinch, Jordanhill, Broomhill and Thornwood community councils areas)

Ward 13 Garscadden and Scotstounhill (made up of Yoker, Scotstoun and Knightswood community council areas)

Local primary school pupils made a significant contribution to the success of the first School Run Summit for west Glasgow, which was hosted earlier this week by local charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre.

The pupils, many of whom are Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs), joined over 40 other people who attended the School Run Summit, to look at how they could work together more effectively to address the school run issue and make the streets in and around local schools in the G11 to G15 postcode areas safer for all.

The primary school pupils told people about the great initiatives they are involved in including the JRSO programme, BikeAbility, the zig-zag campaign, the parking pledge, walking buses and park and stride schemes. Bankhead, Corpus Christi and Garscadden (now part of Clyde Primary) Primary Schools were all awarded the Glasgow City Council’s Lord Provost’s Road Safety Award in September.

The new factsheets for all wards across the city as well as a Glasgow wide factsheet are available on the Council website.
