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.

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 www.talkingfracking.scot 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.

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.
