Views sought on draft ‘local development framework’ for Glasgow district

VIEWS are being sought on a draft ‘local development framework’ for the Drumchapel area of Glasgow, to the north-west of the city centre.

The draft framework – the subject of engagement with the local community, already – considers short, medium and long-term activity “to deliver the area’s future development and regeneration”.

Says Glasgow City Council, here, which is carrying out a consultation: “Some examples of the development types the LDF considers include housing, facilities, shops, public spaces, transport infrastructure, parks and play areas.”

The announcement adds: “In Glasgow, LDFs will deliver planning change at a local level for areas of the city where it is recognised that an additional layer of planning intervention is required. Drumchapel, Greater Pollok and South Central are the three areas in the city identified as locations that would particularly benefit from such intervention.”

The deadline for views is September 5, to be submitted here.
