A Glasgow City Council committee was today (19 November) advised that Strategic Development Frameworks (SDFs) for Govan, Partick and the Clyde Corridor will be submitted to Scottish Ministers as supplementary guidance to the City Development Plan.
These SDFs have been informed by public consultation, with both the Govan-Partick and the Clyde Corridor draft frameworks going out to consultation between December 2018 and February 2019.
The Clyde Corridor SDF gives a spatial vision for the river corridor over the next 30 years, and has identified three main priorities:
- Recognising the Clyde Corridor as a major regeneration project of national significance;
- Unlocking sustainable development along the river corridor by addressing immediate challenges, and developing a long-term, responsive approach to managing the predicted increase in flooding in future years; and
- Promoting a design-led, placemaking approach to enhance and protect the townscape, heritage and environment of the River Corridor while delivering a well-connected and liveable city.
The Govan-Partick SDF provides a spatial vision for the future regeneration of Govan and Partick over the next decade. During this period, Govan and Partick will benefit from the availability of Glasgow City Region City Deal and Strategic Housing Investment Plan funding.
The council will continue to work with partners to deliver the vision for Govan-Partick, addressing the complex challenges and taking advantages of these connected but distinct neighbourhoods to ensure the maximum social, economic and physical benefit. Regenerating these neighbourhoods is key to the regeneration of the river and the wider city.
These frameworks will now be presented to a meeting of the council’s City Administration Committee, and if approved, will then be submitted to Scottish Ministers for consideration, and will – unless significant modifications are proposed – be adopted as supplementary guidance to Glasgow’s City Development Plan.
