Promoting development opportunities

Companies looking to invest in Glasgow's business infrastructure will find a city that takes a very proactive, innovative approach to working with developers to ensure appropriate development takes place.

Glasgow City Council offers a series of measures to support the development industry in its bid to build on the exciting projects under way in the city.

Measures include:

  • Fast tracking major planning applications for key developments
  • Selling land "off market" where developers have access to capital necessary to finance development (subject to independent valuation)
  • More flexibility in land disposal to make it easier for projects to get off the ground
  • Allowing the deferral of payments developers have to make to develop sites
  • Establishing a range of business growth funds to support development
