Life on the edge…

All around…

East Renfrewshire has the most consultations this time with its eight town centre surveys. East Dunbartonshire has a pair either side of Bishopbriggs, to the north and south (A803 Stage 2 closing soon). The latter affects North Glasgow as does Flourishing Molendinar. Also, there’s parking on an NCN in South Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire features a few times and its a last call for town centre regeneration in South Lanarkshire.

Glasgow has a few new traffic orders but the focus today will be the pair of West End consultations for Yorkhill/Kelvingrove and Anderston.

East Renfrewshire are going big with five projects at once. North Lanarkshire have neighbourhood conservation areas and a few traffic orders.

East Dunbartonshire look at the A803 corridor with drop-in event TODAY in Bishopbriggs. However, there’s tragic news elsewhere in the area as a collision killed a 56-year old woman cycling on Manse Road, Bearsden.
