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.

Two of Renfrewshire Council’s City Deal projects have taken a major step forward with the submission of planning applications for both Clyde Waterfront & Renfrew Riverside (CWRR) and Glasgow Airport Investment Area (GAIA) projects.

The CWRR project aims to regenerate the Clyde Waterfront as an attractive area supporting residential, industrial, business, retail and leisure opportunities. This includes a 184 metre, two-lane opening bridge across the River Clyde, linking Meadowside Street in Renfrew with Dock Street in Yoker and accommodating vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. New cycle lanes and connections to existing cycleways and active travel paths, connecting from Inchinnan Road, Renfrew through to Yoker Railway Station.

Authorities in Renfrewshire, West Dunbartonshire and Glasgow will now consider the details of the CWRR project, with plans for the GAIA project submitted to Renfrewshire planning officials for consideration.

If approved, work on both projects is expected to start on site in 2018 with construction completed in 2020. Further information on the planning applications can be found on the Renfrewshire Council website.


What’s happening with Byres Road? We were contacted by the team behind the re-design recently and the provided the following update…

Technical surveys – We’ve been using our enforced silence (due to elections in May and June) to do essential survey research.  A busy street like Byres Road is full of things we have to accommodate: underground pipes and cables, subway tunnel, buses, traffic and lots more besides.

All of these things are ‘constraints’ that we have to design around, and we need to know what we’re dealing with before starting to work with you, the public, to redesign the face of the street.  We should finish that work in July.

YokerCommCampus_photoLocal charity, Yoker Resource Centre, has been awarded £478,230 by the Big Lottery Fund.

The Centre will deliver a new service for people with a disability living in the communities of the West of Glasgow working in partnership with Volunteer Glasgow and support from the Health and Social Care Alliance. The INCLUDED project will work with people to increase their social connections and to access activities of their choice at a time and place that suits them.

Thomas Munro, Chair of the Yoker Resource Centre Committee said, “Our community is very grateful for this investment, which I am certain will have a hugely positive impact on the lives of some of our most disadvantaged residents”

Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn, said: “I am delighted that The Yoker Resource Centre has been successful in securing a Big Lottery Fund grant. The funding will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish the Yoker Resource Centre every success as it goes on to develop and expand its project for the benefit of their local community.”

In 1981 a number of local residents in Yoker formed a local action group. Within two years The Yoker Resource Centre was opened in the disused Yoker Primary School Annex. The Centre has been successfully delivering services in partnership with its local communities ever since.

byresrdcorners_headerThere’s a new Byres Road coming…funding of £9m has been allocated through the Glasgow City Region Deal to make Byres Road better for people.

There will be a public launch of the Byres Road Corners project on Thursday 23 February at 7pm where we will ask people to re-imagine how the street could be.

The council’s Regeneration and the Economy Committee considered the results of public consultation, which resulted in a number of key findings:

  • Support for full street redesign, with improvements benefiting groups such as cyclists and pedestrians
  • Enhance the pedestrian environment, with improved surfaces, reduced street clutter and pavement seating
  • Safe cycle routes
  • Resources available to allow community involvement in design and programming of events in potential new civic spaces
  • Priority spaces were identified, including Ashton Road car park, Church Street triangle, and corners at Chancellor Street and Great George Street

SIMD_2016_CoverA new Scottish Government publication shows the “significant long-term challenge” of tackling deprivation, according to Communities Secretary Angela Constance.

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) publication ranks almost 7000 small areas covering all of Scotland from most- to least-deprived. It combines data from across the UK and Scottish Governments, police and the NHS and is promoted across a range of groups to use the statistics to benefit communities.

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) identifies small area concentrations of multiple deprivation across all of Scotland in a consistent way. It allows effective analysis for the Scottish Government, local authorities, the NHS and the third sector to target policies and funding where the aim is to wholly or partly tackle or take account of area concentrations of multiple deprivation.


SIMD provides a wealth of information to help improve the understanding about the outcomes and circumstances of people living in the most deprived areas in Scotland.
