Putting the ‘Arg’ in Argyle St.
Plans for Argyle St West have re-appeared as a Traffic Order, looking very similar to the last time we shook our heads at them. Most other consultations are continued from the last issue in Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire and the National Park. Plus, there’s more on the phases of the City Network Delivery Plan.
Also, there are new events on the horizon for Govan Graving Docks…Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 135, 18 May 2023”

Return of the City.
After a few issues led by other areas, Glasgow strikes back in this edition. A report on the City Network Delivery Plan offers new hope. Also, the former city ‘Cycling Village’ lands with new proposals (phase map shown, above – sadly the event for it has just passed). Elsewhere in the West End, there’s a Glasgow Uni event about its campus coming soon (see below).
Also, there are projects from South Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and Renfrewshire plus reports from Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and East Renfrewshire.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 134, 04 May 2023”

Behind the scenes.
Glasgow takes a back seat for once as Ayrshire dominates this Digest with a few major strategies and active travel routes. Elsewhere, a big development near Cumbernauld is back for round two.
Renfrewshire sees the latest knee-jerk reaction against cycling infrastructure that could be a crucial link between public transport and an NCN route.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 132, 30 March 2023”

Get your skates on.
Last call for a few Liveable Neighbourhood consultations. There’s a bit longer for Castle Semple at Lochwinnoch. Also, a skatepark proposal re-emerges under the M74.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 131, 16 March 2023”

All or nothing?
After the recent wave of consultations things have calmed down a bit. There’s a new consultation for Castle Semple Country Park in Renfrewshire. Also, something on the horizon for a roundabout junction in Pollok.
It’s the last call for Glasgow’s District consultations and one in Lanarkshire. The Southside Liveable Neighbourhoods consultations have finished but there’s a few more weeks for the north-west and north-east LNs.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 130, 2 March 2023”

In the Neighbourhood…
Another four consultations at once – this time, Liveable Neighbourhoods in Glasgow. Two on the Southside, one for the north-west and one for north-east. Also, new visualisations came out for some of the earlier LN projects (see featured images on this post). A few of South Lanarkshire’s consultations are ongoing and there’s a new one from North Lanarkshire.
Consultation events – Palacerigg, Cumbernauld has a drop-in event TODAY (1–8pm) and Mansewood to Shawlands LN has an event tomorrow (17 Feb, 4–7pm). See below for details…Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 129, 16 February 2023”

It’s all repeats…?
It’s the time of year the BBC dusts down Christmas specials like The Morecambe & Wise Show. This slightly delayed Digest has its own selection box of repeats. Second stage consultations from South Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and North Lanarkshire plus a new city strategy.
Also, there are a few TROs from East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow (for West End parking and more school streets).
It’s been a busy year for consultations so thanks to all those, past and present, who’ve worked on them behind the scenes.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 126, 22 December 2022”

Beacons and Buddies…
A few consultations in Paisley and Renfrewshire in this issue. Glasgow consult about sustainability and North Lanarkshire about building a new trunk road. A lightshow launches the latest landmark on the Forth & Clyde canal.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 125, 8 December 2022”

A short issue as the festive season approaches. Glasgow is still following up its Spaces for People projects with Traffic Regulation Orders, including Royston Rd and Cambridge St. The latter looks better than last year’s proposed plan but there are still questions about how the council, and its partner agencies, follow guidelines and share information. For example, compare the Cambridge St/Cowcaddens Rd junction in the TRO and Avenues Plus plans. Both Pitt St and Raeberry St TROs and the Avenues Plus consultation finish tomorrow.
There’s an early Christmas present for some tenement dwellers as more Bikehangars are installed in parts of the city.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 124, 24 November 2022”
