There are plans for redeveloping both towns and neighbourhood centres in this issue. Information varies from big budget visuals in South Lanarkshire to the ‘secret squirrel’ approach in Renfrewshire. Many of them are in areas which don’t always get the spotlight, either in the ‘shires’ or the edges of the city. Even the latest Avenues project is at the edge of the city centre. Also, there’s a less edgy (but important) city strategy and North Lanarkshire’s development plan and new crossings. Plus, a Dutch-style junction comes to East Renfrewshire…

More Development Plans and next steps for Connecting Woodside and Liveable Neighbourhoods. A replacement hospital and junctions. Also, Glasgow has a second attempt at a Framework consultation.

At a crossroads?
As cycling competitions continue, grumbling goes on about temporary closures and restrictions. However, there’s a spotlight on permanent issues for active travel at junctions around the city. Most poignantly, there’s a fresh look at Broomielaw/Clyde St in memory of Emma Burke Newman. However, in Pollok there’s another rehash of a redesign (with a public event TODAY at 1pm).
There are two South Lanarkshire consultations, one from Ayrshire then the rest are all about Glasgow. One has fine words about urban sport (despite being called CUSS!). Meanwhile, in the East End, a new sporting venue could safeguard a local landmark. Will these count towards the legacy of the 2023 World Championships (and how will that compare to 2014)?

Putting it all together.
August opens with Cycle to Work Day and plenty of Traffic Orders from Glasgow, East Ayrshire and East Dunbartonshire. There’s analysis of the event for the eastern side of Argyle St, with accessibility issues raised again. Also, a major city centre plan being pushed by GCC (with several emails to GoBike). It has a few surprises which could help connect the city centre. (Tonight’s Digest was delayed by connection and commuting issues –apologies.)

Happy Easter! Things are a bit dead, before numbers rise again after the election, so it’s a chance to bring back consultations that slipped through the net in the last few months. The 12 local authorities in the Strathclyde area don’t always let us know what they’re up to!
This issue features East Ayrshire and West Dunbartonshire for the first time in a while. North Ayrshire and Inverclyde still have consultations open. Also, regulars like Glasgow, East Renfrewshire and South Lanarkshire. The latter had a consultation that fell between Digest issues (see featured image, above) and sent a new update on NCN74.
Also, ahead of the local elections, check out Walk, Wheel, Cycle, Vote and consider a trip to Edinburgh for Pedal on Parliament‘s new route on 23 April (just after Earth Day).

We approach Burns Night with some news from Rabbie’s home county, a few other shires and the city.
This Digest is within a week of Burns Night so it’s fitting that we have some news from Ayrshire. A few consultations have come in from East Renfrewshire and South Lanarkshire. Also, a last chance to comment on plans for North Glasgow. So, is 2021 starting to pick up slightly? As Burns said: “Hope springs exulting on triumphant wing.“
Since there have been a few breaks in the weather maybe there will be more chances to try some of Andy’s three infrastructure routes around Glasgow.
There’s still time to sign the petition for segregated cycle lanes at the Kelvin Way-University Avenue junction (until 28 January).
