Consultation underway on the future of Drumchapel

Glasgow City Chambers

GLASGOW City Council has confirmed that a consultation offering the chance to help guide the future development of Drumchapel is underway.

Those taking part in the online consultation will help inform the final local development framework (LDF) for the area, a document which will recommend coordinated short, medium, and long-term activity to deliver the area’s future development and regeneration.

Some examples of the development types the LDF considers include housing, facilities, shops, public spaces, transport infrastructure, parks, and play areas.

Information from engagement with the local community in the autumn of 2022 assisted in the development of the current draft Drumchapel LDF. The final version will help address regeneration challenges and allow development opportunities in the area to be taken.

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.

Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said, “The Drumchapel local development framework will give a long-term vision for the area, one that is best created with the input of local people and organisations. So we would ask everyone living, working, or with a stake in the area to take part in this consultation, which will guide how Drumchapel develops in future years and decades.”

Information on the draft LDF and how to take part in the consultation is available here. The consultation will run until 5 September.
