Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 157, 18 April 2024

All around…

East Renfrewshire has the most consultations this time with its eight town centre surveys. East Dunbartonshire has a pair either side of Bishopbriggs, to the north and south (A803 Stage 2 closing soon). The latter affects North Glasgow as does Flourishing Molendinar. Also, there’s parking on an NCN in South Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire features a few times and its a last call for town centre regeneration in South Lanarkshire.

Glasgow has a few new traffic orders but the focus today will be the pair of West End consultations for Yorkhill/Kelvingrove and Anderston.
Drop-in event: TODAY Thursday 18 April 2024 at 3.30–7pm in The Pyramid at Anderston, 759 Argyle Street, Glasgow G3 8DS.

In the centre…

Town centres dominate this issue – one in South Lanarkshire (visualisation in featured image, above) and no less than eight in East Renfrewshire! Elsewhere, North Lanarkshire’s consultations continue and South Ayrshire looks at car parking. Glasgow has a few projects in both the West End and in the north of the city – one of the latter links with East Dunbartonshire.

Stitching it together…

Plans for a few Paisley landmarks to connect with more green space. Glasgow has guidance on green belt, delivery, place and a few Development Frameworks. East Dunbartonshire gathers evidence at events for its Local Development Plan 3. Also, neighbourhood plans in East Kilbride and school streets in East Ayrshire.

The new look Digest is still coming together as well – hopefully in the New Year.

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).

A second bite…

Some consultations have slipped through the net recently (due to limited time to produce the Digest). This Extra rounds up some of the ones that would otherwise have missed out.

The following are in date order – you’ve not got long to respond to the first project, which takes a bite out of Apple’s ambitions…

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.
