A public consultation on the future use of the Dalmarnock Legacy Hub – located on Springfield Road – begins today (13 March) with an online survey.
The survey – lasting for six weeks – will run alongside public engagement events, including drop-in sessions on Tuesday 17 March (noon-2pm); Wednesday 25 March (6-8pm) and Saturday 28 March (1-3pm).
During this engagement process, we would like to find out what the changing community of Dalmarnock want and need from this building, which could bring the right local services together into one accessible space for the benefit of everyone in the community. To get the most accurate version of what local people and organisations really want, it is important that as many people as possible take part.
The engagement will help to decide who operates and manages the hub – it does not have to be Glasgow City Council. The process will result in a co-created vision of how the hub is run, and what services are provided there.
Councillor Greg Hepburn, Chair of the Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm Committee at Glasgow City Council, said: “I am delighted that we are announcing the beginning of this six week public engagement exercise. The people of Dalmarnock have been waiting patiently for the reopening of the Legacy Hub, and we would like everyone with an interest to take part in this consultation so that we can confirm what services the community wants to see based there. All options are on the table, from bringing back nursery provision to keeping a space for local events and social gatherings. If you have thoughts on the building’s future, please take part in the online survey or drop-in events. If you do, we can make sure the Hub delivers the services that the people of Dalmarnock want and need in this fantastic local space.”

Once this stage of the consultation in complete, a short report summarising its findings will be given to stakeholders, and an open meeting will be held to discuss this with residents.
The proposals for the community hubs have been informed by Glasgow City Council’s Property and Land Strategy, and more detail about this strategy can be found here: http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/
