planningconsultationBack in  January Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Local Government and Housin, launched “Places, people and planning: a consultation on the future of planning in Scotland.”  The  and associated research has been published alongside it and the updated participation statement is also now available.

Responses to the consultation should be submitted to Planning and Architecture Division of the Scottish Government by 5pm on Tuesday 4 April 2017.

The consultation paper “Places, people and planning” sets out 20 proposals for change which aim to strengthen the planning system.   The Scottish Government are keen to hear all stakeholders’ views, therefore would be grateful if you could help to raise awareness of the consultation and to encourage your community council to respond.

frackingconsultThe Scottish Government recently launched a consultation into the use of fracking. The future of unconventional oil and gas in Scotland has proven both complex and controversial, and deeply held, sincere views have emerged on all sides of the debate.

A dedicated website has been created for the duration of the consultation that will provide user-friendly information on unconventional oil and gas and the findings of the research commissioned by the Scottish Government. Discussion tool-kits have also been created to help communities and other groups participate in the consultation, which will run from 31 January to 31 May 2017.

Friends of the Earth Scotland Head of Campaigns Mary Church said:

Fracking is bad for the climate, bad for public health and threatens communities across Scotland. Nation-wide resistance led the Scottish Government to call a halt to onshore gas drilling and fracking two years ago. If we don’t turn the current moratorium into a ban, communities across the central belt of Scotland will continue to be at risk from this dirty industry.

All of the information collected has been bought together into a report, which contains detailed information about all the topics discussed as well a series of suggestions to be taken forward to the next round of public consultation.

local-policing-consultation-banner-familyPolice Scotland consults with the public every year on what their priorities are for policing in their local community.

In the past this has always been by hard copy consultation questionnaires which were distributed by police officers within the community they work. This year Police Scotland’s consultation process is widening and becoming more flexible. The consultation process is moving online to a digital format and consultation will be open all year.

You can view the current local priorities for the Glasgow North West wards on the Police Scotland website.

ClydePlan_logoClydeplan have recently published for consultation its Proposed Strategic Development Plan and Strategic Environmental Assessment Environment Report.

The Proposed Plan is intended to replace the Glasgow and the Clyde Valley Strategic Development Plan which was approved by Scottish Ministers in May 2012. The Proposed Plan is supported by an Equality Impact Assessment, Habitats Regulations Appraisal, an Action Programme and 14 Background Reports.

BikePath_People_SustransRecently Glasgow City Council consulted on their revised Strategic Plan for Cycling and Sustrans Scotland have made their response available in their website. The response makes for very interesting reading and helps to pull together some of the different policies and strategies that will influence the cycling strategy. The introduction to the response states…

We believe there is a large latent demand for cycling in Glasgow. The potential is shown in 75% of all journeys in Glasgow being less than 5km, coupled with Glasgow having the lowest car ownership levels in Scotland. There is real potential to transform Glasgow into a cycling city, where short everyday journeys undertaken by bicycle are both easy and normal.

However, in order to achieve this, we believe there are many areas of this strategy in which Glasgow City Council needs to be bolder and more ambitious , in order to make travelling by bicycle an easy and obvious choice for everyone. There are also several areas where we feel greater clarity is needed.

GCC_CyclingStrategyGlasgow City Council‘s Strategic Plan for Cycling 2015 -2025 consultation runs from 12 June 2015 to the 4 September 2015.  This Plan sets out Glasgow’s vision, objectives, targets and actions for increasing levels of cycling – for leisure, as a mode of transport and for sport.

The vision for Glasgow is to create a vibrant Cycling City where cycling is accessible, safe and attractive to all.

The Plan updates the 2010 strategy which focussed on preparing the city for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The Games were a resounding success and this plan builds upon its legacy, making best use of existing and new facilities, and aiming to increase participation in cycling as an everyday activity, as well as a sport and leisure activity.
