Our 2019 Public Meeting and AGM is only 1 week away, next Saturday, 16th November. This year we are extremely pleased that Councillor Lesley Macinnes, Convener Edinburgh City Council Transport and Environment Committee, will be our Guest Speaker. This will provide us with an opportunity to understand what is being planned for Edinburgh, the issues they are facing and what lesson could be learned for Glasgow.
Please make sure you spread the word that everybody is welcome to attend the whole event. To help us gauge numbers you can book tickets on here.
The agenda for the afternoon is:
14:00 Registration, Tea and Coffee
14:15 Open AGM

14:20 Treasurer’s report
14:30 Co-convenors review of the year
14:45 South City Way Campaign – Bob Downie
14:55 Members Motion – Pat Toms
GoBike is concerned that GCC officers do not act consistently in accordance with council policy on Active Travel – with regards to new inappropriate facilities (South City Way, Sauchiehall Street and elsewhere) and inappropriate approval of a planning application (the recent University development for which there is inappropriate provision for increased traffic on University Avenue).
The council is asked to investigate why there is recurring non-compliance, to identify changes that would ensure compliance and to take appropriate action.
This meeting wishes this motion be presented to the Active Travel Forum, all councillors, be sent to the press with a press release and be sent to Glasgow’s Urbanist, who is being employed by GCC to consider officer skills in part.
