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.

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 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.
