DRUMCHAPEL residents are being urged to have their say on the future of the area.

An online consultation, offering people the chance to help guide future development, was launched at the end of June.

It will run until September 5.

Clydebank Post:

Those taking part will inform the final Local Development Framework (LDF) for Drumchapel.

An LDF is a document that will recommend coordinated short, medium, and long-term activity to deliver the area’s future development and regeneration.

It will consider development types including housing, facilities, shops, public spaces, transport infrastructure, parks, and play areas.

Information from the local community gathered in the autumn of last year assisted in the development of the current draft Drumchapel LDF.

It is hoped that the final version will help address regeneration challenges and will allow development opportunities in the area to be taken.

Across Glasgow, LDFs will deliver planning change at a local level for three areas of the city – Drumchapel, Greater Pollok, and South Central – where it is recognised that an additional layer of planning intervention is required.

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.”
