The DRCET Board has recently reviewed and update our core operational area. This follows the recent Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland Fifth Electoral Review which saw several changes to Ward boundaries in the city, and in particular in the local area with the creation of the new Victoria Park ward.

Our new revised core operational area covers two complete wards – Ward 13 Garscadden/Scotstounhill and Ward 12 Victoria Park – which in turn covers 7 community council areas – Yoker, Scotstoun and Knightswood in Ward 13 and Whiteinch, Jordanhill, Broomhill and Thornwood in Ward 12. Just over 54,000 people live in this area – approx 9% of the population of Glasgow.

When DRCET was first set up the operational area covered the Dumbarton Road Corridor small area Social Inclusion Partnership which covered Yoker, part of Scotstoun and Whiteinch. Then with the arrival of the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership and the multi-member wards this changed again to take in all of Scotstoun and also Knightswood.
