Get your skates on.
Last call for a few Liveable Neighbourhood consultations. There’s a bit longer for Castle Semple at Lochwinnoch. Also, a skatepark proposal re-emerges under the M74.

All or nothing?
After the recent wave of consultations things have calmed down a bit. There’s a new consultation for Castle Semple Country Park in Renfrewshire. Also, something on the horizon for a roundabout junction in Pollok.
It’s the last call for Glasgow’s District consultations and one in Lanarkshire. The Southside Liveable Neighbourhoods consultations have finished but there’s a few more weeks for the north-west and north-east LNs.

In the Neighbourhood…
Another four consultations at once – this time, Liveable Neighbourhoods in Glasgow. Two on the Southside, one for the north-west and one for north-east. Also, new visualisations came out for some of the earlier LN projects (see featured images on this post). A few of South Lanarkshire’s consultations are ongoing and there’s a new one from North Lanarkshire.
Consultation events – Palacerigg, Cumbernauld has a drop-in event TODAY (1–8pm) and Mansewood to Shawlands LN has an event tomorrow (17 Feb, 4–7pm). See below for details…

In the shadow of the bridge…
February sees an increase in number and scale of consultations. This (delayed) Digest includes four District Regeneration Frameworks and four projects from South Lanarkshire.
Tragically, January ended with the death of Emma Newman, after being hit by a truck driver while cycling on Broomielaw in Glasgow. Her local councillor Jon Molyneux paid tribute to Emma at a meeting to discuss a 20mph limit for the city. GoBike would like to offer sincere condolences to Emma’s family and friends.

Happy New Year. Nothing came in during early January so this short Digest is the first of the year. There are consultations in South Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire. Also, events and consultations coming soon for parts of Glasgow city centre.
During the break, it emerged that GoBike has serious issues with its committee. The last few meetings didn’t take place, including an AGM. Some past committee members stepped in to organise a ‘caretaker’ meeting online. Following on from that, moves are being made to organise an Extraordinary General Meeting within the next few months. This would try to appoint a new committee (especially convenor and treasurer) to avoid GoBike having to fold. Please look out for a post/email announcement in the near future.

It’s all repeats…?
It’s the time of year the BBC dusts down Christmas specials like The Morecambe & Wise Show. This slightly delayed Digest has its own selection box of repeats. Second stage consultations from South Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and North Lanarkshire plus a new city strategy.
Also, there are a few TROs from East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow (for West End parking and more school streets).
It’s been a busy year for consultations so thanks to all those, past and present, who’ve worked on them behind the scenes.

Beacons and Buddies…
A few consultations in Paisley and Renfrewshire in this issue. Glasgow consult about sustainability and North Lanarkshire about building a new trunk road. A lightshow launches the latest landmark on the Forth & Clyde canal.

A short issue as the festive season approaches. Glasgow is still following up its Spaces for People projects with Traffic Regulation Orders, including Royston Rd and Cambridge St. The latter looks better than last year’s proposed plan but there are still questions about how the council, and its partner agencies, follow guidelines and share information. For example, compare the Cambridge St/Cowcaddens Rd junction in the TRO and Avenues Plus plans. Both Pitt St and Raeberry St TROs and the Avenues Plus consultation finish tomorrow.
There’s an early Christmas present for some tenement dwellers as more Bikehangars are installed in parts of the city.

Avenues and corridors…
Major changes are proposed for Cowcaddens Rd/Dobbie’s Loan (visual of Port Dundas Rd, above). Another Avenues project on Pitt St has a Traffic Regulation Order, as does the East City Way on London Rd. It’s last call for St George’s Rd but more from Connecting Woodside in Glasgow’s TROs.
East Renfrewshire’s Local Action Plans close soon but Balgray Connections is open a bit longer. East Dunbartonshire have extended one consultation and started a major one about the Springburn Rd/Kirkintilloch Rd ‘corridor’. Also, good news from Inverclyde.

“It’s in the trees, it’s coming!”*
The latest drop-in event is about Dams to Darnley Country Park and East Renfrewshire’s Balgray Connections project. Today’s event is in Avenue Shopping Centre, Newton Mearns, 11am–3pm (near Costa). Another follows on 2 November, 3pm to 7pm at Barrhead Foundry centre.
Also, it’s decision day at Inverclyde Council for the Spaces for People route in Greenock. Will they follow Renfrewshire and remove it? Or will it get a stay of execution?
A few consultations come to an end over the Hallowe’en weekend – including for North Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow.
