Yoker Community Campus and Volunteer Glasgow are seeking experienced Literacy Tutors over 18 years of age to support young people and adults with additional needs to improve their life opportunities.

The INCLUDED project is seeking 6 tutors to deliver learning sessions in creative and innovative ways. The learning can take place in groups or in individual sessions. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone seeking to develop or enhance their tutoring skills. To learn more click here.

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.

 

Following the recent local government elections Glasgow City Council has updated their Ward factsheets for the 23 wards in the city. The useful 2 page factsheets provide a range of information on a ward-by-ward basis about:

  • population
  • households and housing
  • economy
  • information about elected members

The new factsheets for all wards across the city as well as a Glasgow wide factsheet are available on the Council website.

Following on from last weeks Scottish local government elections our new local Councillors have been elected. Well done to everyone that has been elected to serve their local communities.

Glasgow now has 85 Councillors across 23 Wards in the City and in the local area the new Councillors are shown below. The link takes you to the Councillors page on the Council website.

Ward 12 Victoria Park (made up of Whiteinch, Jordanhill, Broomhill and Thornwood community councils areas)

Ward 13 Garscadden and Scotstounhill (made up of Yoker, Scotstoun and Knightswood community council areas)

Following our recent strategic review DRCET has widened our core operating area to cover two full electoral Wards – Ward 13 Garscadden / Scotstounhill and Ward 12 Victoria Park. And moving forward DRCET will be using the Place Standard to evaluate the quality of this area.

The Place Standard can evaluate places that are well-established, undergoing change, or still being planned. The tool can also help users to identify their priorities.

The tool is simple to use and consists of 14 topics (shown below) which cover both the physical and social elements of a place. Prompts are provided to help users answer the questions and when all 14 questions have been completed, the results are shown in a simple diagram as shown above and below.

We would appreciate it if you could take 5-10 minutes to complete the survey, which is available online at:

www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/drcet-place-standard

or you can download a PDF version here DRCET_PlaceStandard_Survey_v3_Mar17.

If you have any questions then please contact Neil (m: 07943 957061, e: neil@dumbartonroad.com
