Glasgow city centre future mapped out until 2050

THE future of Glasgow’s city centre has been mapped out until the year 2050.

Begins an announcement issued by the city council, here: “The Strategic Development Framework (SDF) for Glasgow city centre – the document which will help guide the area’s development over the next three decades, driving economic renewal and meeting the challenges of climate change – has now been adopted by Glasgow City Council after approval from the Scottish Government.”

The announcement adds: “The delivery of these ambitions will mean that Glasgow will have a city centre that is vibrant, sustainable, liveable and well-connected, offering ‘20-minute neighbourhoods’ that provide all the daily (and night-time) needs of the people who work, live, study and visit there in terms of local services, shops and green space.

“The environment of the city centre will be healthier, with its streets and public spaces both more attractive and more resilient to climate change – helping to deliver the national target to be net zero-carbon by 2045. 

“The area will also attract more investment as businesses and developers respond to the increased quality of its spaces and places, so fundamental to the enjoyment of a city centre.

“Glasgow City Council looks forward to collaborating with local residents, workers and visitors – as well as government agencies, investors, developers, and businesses – and all who experience the city centre on the delivery of the SDF Action Plan and the future improvement of the area.”
