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

 

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.

We all have rights in everyday life – like rights to housing and health, and to be involved in decisions that affect us. Do we know our rights? How can we make sure our rights are met in practice?

The Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) and All In invite you to take part in events in your area to explore what human rights mean and how to improve access to them for everybody. The information we get will help shape Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights, and local services.

Attend in Glasgow on Wednesday 30 August and Friday 29 September 2017 at Townhead Village Hall. There are also events in Edinburgh, Inverness and Dumfries.

Download the flyer (SNAP_Glasgow), visit the website or contact Pauline at allin@ghn.org.uk for more information.

Glasgow City Council is holding an online consultation and walk-in session to assess how they can improve walking and cycling routes to Knightswood Park, host venue for the BMX competitions of the 2018 European Championships.

The public walk-in session will take place from 3-9pm on Tuesday 15 August at Knightswood Community Centre, 201 Alderman Road G13 3DD, where you can also meet the project team.

Alternatively there will be an online consultation available between 7 August and 4 September 2017 where you can find more details of the project and to add your comments.

The Council is proposing a number of changes to improve the environment for cyclists and pedestrians. New designs could see the implementation of:

  • New footways
  • Pedestrian and cycle zebra crossings
  • Reallocation of road space
  • Segregated cycle lanes

This is to increase road safety, improve public space, increase the number of cyclists, and reduce sustainable transport journey times.

Have your say in the creation of your place! Pop along to the walk-in session or submit your comments online. Poster available here knightswood_travel_consultation_poster

The Consultative Draft of the Glasgow Community Plan has been developed by partners in the city to articulate the priority areas where joint action can make a real difference. Residents are invited to voice their opinions on the plan.

Glasgow Community Planning Partnership brings together public agencies, the third sector and the private sector, to work to improve the city its services and the lives of people who live and work here.

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 requires the Partnership to publish a plan that sets out our shared priorities for the city, where we plan to make improvements and over time show that we have made these improvements. This document sets out these priority areas for consultation. The final version of the Glasgow Community Plan will be published in October 2017. Public feedback to the draft will help shape that document.

The Consultative Draft of the Glasgow Community Plan can be found here GlasgowCommunityPlan_ConsultativeDraft

All members of the community are invited and encouraged to have your say on the plan using the following online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GlasgowCommunityPlan
The survey will be open until Thursday 31 August 2017.

You can also find this information via social media on Twitter using the hashtag #HaveYourSayGlas and on Facebook.

Glasgow City Council has appointed consultants Here+Now to engage with Glaswegians to get their views regarding the future of food growing in Glasgow. This will look at issues such as community gardens, allotments, vacant and derelict land, the circular economy and urban agriculture!

The Community Empowerment Act 2015 places a duty on all Scottish Local Authorities to prepare a food growing strategy for its area and identify land suitable for growing.

A number of workshops will be held to find out more about people’s needs and wishes when it comes to urban growing and would like to invite you or anyone that might be interested to one of the workshop sessions. Whether you’re a keen gardener, involved in a community growing project, hold an allotment or have never been involved in a community growing project before, they would like to hear from you.
