Glasgow City Council is developing a new vision for parks and greenspaces in Glasgow and they are holding an online consultation which will run until Friday 11 May.

The Council are keen to make sure the vision of what Glasgow’s parks and greenspaces may look like, and what roles they will perform in the future, comes from the communities that use and love these spaces. Please note that the consultation only covers sites that are owned or managed by Glasgow City Council.

Following a series of workshops with Friends of Parks Groups, Community Councils and Parks User Groups a report was published in January 2017 which identified the following issues:

  • Communication
  • Improved Parks Forum
  • Community Growing
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Re-wilding
  • Activities and events

The Council are now consulting via the Council’s online consultation hub.

Have your say! Glasgow City Council is undertaking a consultation of the Governance arrangements for Community Councils including a review of certain Community Council boundaries and a review of support arrangements. The closing date for submitting responses is Friday 4 May 2018.

Glasgow Airport has launched a 13-week public consultation seeking feedback on proposals to modernise the airspace currently used by aircraft to fly to and from the airport.

The airspace change proposals form part of the UK Future Airspace Strategy (FAS), an industry-wide initiative driven by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

A key element of the FAS involves removing ground-based navigation aids across the UK and using state-of-the-art satellite navigation systems. The ground-based navigation aid which Glasgow Airport currently uses to guide aircraft to and from the airfield will be decommissioned in 2019.

Further information on the airspace consultation, including how to respond, can be found here. The deadline for submissions is Friday 13 April 2018

Glasgow City Council is once again inviting people to take part in budget conversations to discuss the financial challenge facing the city.  They want to continue that discussion with you and have launched an online consultation and they will be holding three events for invited representatives of community groups.

The Council is expected to have to save around £33 million during the next financial year following the settlement figures from the Scottish Government. They are already working on ways to close that spending gap and the conversations in previous budgets have been important in identifying areas where the Council can do things differently, what services people value and what role the community can play.

Glasgow City Council has recently produced a draft City Charter for consultation. The City Charter is an informal agreement between the council and its citizens that lists their shared commitments, aims and standards.  It sets out:

  • Values and the ways of working people should expect from the council;
  • Vision for the city; and
  • What we can do together to meet this vision.

To inform the ongoing development of the City Charter the City Council would welcome your views, comments and suggestions on draft Charter (20171113_GCC_CityCharter_DRAFT). More information is available on the Council consultation hub www.glasgow.gov.uk/consultations – click on current consultations!

The deadline for responding to the draft City Charter is Friday 22 December 2017 – Deadline extended to Friday 26 January 2018

 

greenspace scotland is working with Glasgow City Council to support the development of a Food Growing Strategy for the city. Over the next two years, all Scottish Local Authorities will be required to develop a Local Food Growing Strategy as part of the implementation of Community Empowerment Act (2015).

greenspace scotland will be working in two areas within the city – one in the West and one in the South to identify local priorities and partners, map food growing which is happening on the ground and develop detailed proposals for community growing projects which can be taken forward quickly to ensure that the strategy begins to deliver change as soon as possible. The approach will then be rolled out to the rest of Glasgow (as appropriate).

There will be two events held to begin the process. Click on the link to reserve your place:

There’s a new Byres Road coming… funding of £9m has been allocated through the Glasgow City Region Deal to make Byres Road a great place to be. This is everyone’s opportunity to reshape Byres Road as a world-class street for businesses, residents and visitors. Come and have your say.

A series of public events will be taking place in August to share different options to balance pedestrians, cyclists, buses and traffic — and to make Byres Road a better place for everybody. Everybody is welcome – input is needed from as many people as possible to guide the right solution.
