Proposals launched for Broomielaw regeneration

11 Feb 2019

The IFSD is a central part of plans for the regeneration of Broomielaw being considered by Glasgow City Council.

The plans include proposals for a world-class River Park along both banks of the Clyde; an examination of the impacts of the M8 motorway on the area; establishing a vibrant mixed-use riverfront community featuring high-quality contemporary design; creating new public and green spaces; and instilling a collaborative approach to attracting investment and funding.

The draft identifies the IFSD as one of the Broomielaw's existing strengths and also cites its tremendous potential in the form of increasing developer activity and interest.

A public consultation on the currently draft proposals has started and will run until 5 April, after which the final Framework and Action Plan will be produced.

Encouraging participation in the consultation, Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "This is a part of Glasgow that has enormous scope to influence the future development of the city centre and the river corridor, so please take the opportunity to help shape the final plans by taking part in the consultation on the Broomielaw District Regeneration Framework."
