If at first you don’t succeed…
Happy St Andrew’s Day.
Closing today – a consultation in Argyll and Bute plus two Liveable Neighbourhood plans for the Southside of the city.
Glasgow also has a glut of guidance, frameworks and traffic orders. North Lanarkshire looks at speed limits in Seven Lochs Wetland Park. Renfrewshire has a few more tries at taming traffic.
We’re still working on the new Digest (apologies for any stray test posts last week).

Running on empty…
Unfortunately, this Digest is even later than other recent issues as it’s become a struggle for your author to find time for them. This issue has less info than previous ones so it’s quicker to produce. The format of the Digest will have to change further to make it sustainable in future.

Out of the rubble…
As destruction dominates the news abroad and in parts of the UK, there’s little solace to be found. However, this issue has a few consultations with plans for new construction following demolitions in North Glasgow and North Ayrshire. Also, renewal for a town centre in South Lanarkshire. In Glasgow, there are plans for city centre junctions and a ‘conversation’ event in the Southside. Elsewhere, there’s a one-way system proposed in Renfrewshire.

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.

Engagement and replacement…
There are two very different replacement projects in this (belated) issue. Pollok Roundabout proposals would replace one car-centric design with another. However, plans for the replacement Monklands Hospital, Airdrie include an active travel path and bridge.
Another duo of Liveable Neighbourhood consultations return with plans to comment on – this time it’s Royston to Hogganfield and Yoker to Whiteinch. There’s also a pair of pre-consultations with both Glasgow and East Renfrewshire asking how best to engage the public.
Elsewhere, it’s last call for the Hairmyres station consultation, South Lanarkshire’s Transport Strategy and Drumchapel’s Local Development Framework. The Waiting to Happen and Doon Valley consultations continue.

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)?

Waiting for the flag to drop.....
It’s less than a week until the UCI World Championships take place around Glasgow/Scotland. It’s the first combined event including every cycling discipline and should bring thousands of fans to the city. The UCI’s world champion colours are all over the city centre, including on stripey Cyclehangars. The City Council is using the spotlight to consult on a cycle sports strategy. Hopefully there’s more of a legacy for urban sports like BMX from this championship than there was from the Commonwealth Games.
This Digest also has two consultations from South Lanarkshire, one from South Ayrshire, a quick one from East Dunbartonshire and a long Framework from Glasgow.
Addition: Forthcoming consultation event
Pollok Roundabout redesign

Consultation event: Thurs 10 August, 1pm to 7pm at Pollok Civic Realm.
Website link: Pollok Roundabout plans and Pollok Roundabout survey.
This issue goes out just ahead of the Glasgow Fair with consultations for Dennistoun, Calton and Pollok about to pack up for the holidays. Another for the national park ends soon and an Ayrshire seaside resort is looking to plan active travel routes. Dropping in at the last minute is a new strategy about BMX and skating in Glasgow.

Wishaw you were here?
A belated issue with a range of consultations from town centres and neighbourhoods to parks and prisons. New plans from North Lanarkshire, not-so-new plans from East Dunbartonshire and a mixture from Glasgow.
