Bid to make city centre world class

13 Jan 2014

A new team has been put in place to make Glasgow city centre one of the best in the world.

The idea is based on projects already in operation in New York, London and Melbourne.

The seven-strong group, who have years of experience and a wide range of professional skills, will drive the regeneration of the area.

The city council has been working with the Chamber of Commerce to draw up a five year plan for the centre of the city.

It will help promote the unique aspects of nine separate districts which make up the city centre.

As a first step, action will be taken to react to issues raised by businesses and residents including environmental blight, poorly maintained sites, the need to create new spaces or promote activities.

Plans will also be put in place to bring forward the regeneration of the nine districts.
