Consultation Digest Issue 47, 12 November 2019: Good News and Bad News from Glasgow City Council

ANNOUNCEMENT
Glasgow City Council have now placed GoBike on the Stage One List of Statutory Consultees. This means that we are provided with details of proposals that the City Council is considering for a future Traffic Regulation Order, but, if the reaction at this first stage is not supportive the Council might not proceed with it.
This is very good news for GoBike but if does mean that we have to review our ways of working. We are not allowed to publicise the proposals until they proceed to the formal TRO stage and we are now working on a process for effective Stage One review.

So that is the good news from Glasgow City Council and the bad news is contained within Item 3.1, a Parking and One-Way Street issue, but do read on for our list of contents and the wide range of issues that we bring to you in this issue:

Petition: Keep National Cycle Route 75 Open During Public Events in Glasgow Green

Here’s a reminder from GoBike member, Bob Downie, about the petition he has lodged with Glasgow City Council:

Hi Folks

Next year the TRNSMT Festival will be back in Glasgow Green from the 10-12th July. We wish it every success but there is no reason that the NCR75 cycleway should be shut at the same time. If you live in Glasgow and haven’t got around to signing, then the petition closes on the 28th October. Please sign and pass the link onto your friends and family.

Lets keep NCR75 open at all times. After all, it’s the busiest and best cycleway in Glasgow.

Do please read on.
