A few strategies missed out on the recent Digest, including the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) Active Travel Strategy. The council’s City Centre Strategy came out the day after the Digest but is obviously important for Glasgow…Continue reading “Consultation Extra: City Centre & SPT Active Travel Strategies (20-10-23)”
Intro 101 or Room 101?
The number 101 can mean an introductory course in a US college. Alternatively, it could be a torture chamber of your worst nightmares in the book Nineteen Eighty-Four. The Digest covers both bases with some horribly complicated plans to try to explain in simple terms.
If only this didn’t apply to any of the latest plans from Glasgow’s Avenues Project. While safer routes are welcome, issues with side streets don’t seem to have improved since Sauchiehall St. The lanes on Argyle St west (Central Station end, shown above) seem to be based on a retro movie poster.

Less wordy on a Thursday.
The cut-down Digest continues in its new Thursday slot. Also, contents links have been reinstated.
- Two Liveable Neighbourhood pilots have started with two to follow – Dennistoun to Cranhill and Greater Govan to Kingston.
- Glasgow’s draft Active Travel Strategy goes to council committee next week with consultation to follow.
Consultations baton change.
As the 2020 Paralympics take place in Tokyo, how is Glasgow looking towards its own global event: COP26? Currently, the city council has a new, short notice consultation about suspending public access rights. You may have seen GoBike banners on the subject or media coverage of support from Scotland’s new Active Travel minister – Green MSP, Patrick Harvie. It’s also a last call for the survey on Glasgow’s Low Emission Zone.
It’s a final fling for a handful of consultations around Glasgow (and one in Renfrewshire). There’s a bit longer for a few others – a new survey on secure cycle parking in the city centre and the last leg of East Dunbartonshire’s Active Travel Discussion.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 94, 31 August 2021”
Shaping the north of the city plus your reactions to roadworks and more speed cushions.
It’s like buses – wait for ages for a consultation about the north of the city then loads come along at once. In this case, workshops for a few northern city centre ‘districts’, a future consultation about the uni/college campuses around Cathedral St and a strategic document about North Glasgow.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 74, 24 November 2020”
