Views sought on the River Clyde

VIEWS are being sought on the potential (economic, environmental, etc) of the River Clyde, which flows through Glasgow.

A consultation has been launched by the Scottish Government, which closes at the end of this month.

The views will feed into an already-existing initiative, called Clyde Mission (here).

Says a Scottish Government announcement (here): “Last year, the Clyde Mission Fund provided more than £11 million of funding for projects that will create jobs and benefit communities along the river.

“A further £2.3 million has also been awarded to the [regeneration project] Clyde Gateway to support the extension of the riverside Woodland Park at Cuningar Loop near Dalmarnock.

“The project will reclaim 8.5 hectares of vacant and derelict land that has been unused for 50 years and turn it into an extended park, providing quality, accessible green space along the river.”

Views are being sought by March 29, here.
