A FOUR-week public engagement process on the future design of George Square and the surrounding streets begins today.
The online engagement relates to Block C of Glasgow City Council’s ambitious public realm and active travel Avenues Programme comprising George Square and approximately 2.5km of the adjacent streetscape.
Those interested in taking part in the consultation or looking for more information should visit www.ourplaceglasgow.com.
The scope of the improvements will include George Street and St Vincent Street as well as Dundas Street and Dundas Lane, John Street, St Vincent Place, Miller Street and Hanover Street.
Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “George Square should be Glasgow’s greatest civic space and, through this consultation, we all have the opportunity to make sure the square and its surrounding Avenues meet our aspirations for the future.
“While the Conversation about George Square back in 2019 told us what the people of the city felt about the space, and their ambitions for it, this consultation is different. This time we are asking for views specifically on how people want the Square to look, in terms of its design and what is in it.”
Construction is due to start in 2024 and will be delivered in two phases: Phase one will include George Square, Dundas Street, Dundas Lane and John Street, and is due to be completed in 2026. Phase two includes St Vincent Street, St Vincent Place, Hanover Street, Miller Street and George Street. This is due for completion in 2028.
