REGENERATION initiative Clyde Gateway is drawing up plans to improve an area of open space and woodland in Glasgow’s East End.
The aim is to create a high-quality area of land for public enjoyment between Old Dalmarnock Road, Dunn Street and Finnart Street, with Bridgeton Community Learning Campus at its heart.
Some preliminary consultation has been undertaken through discussions with local groups.
Initial proposals include:
— Thinning out and opening up the woodland, forming paths and openings with good lines of visibility.
— Introducing a junior bike circuit.
— Creating a community growing space close to the learning campus.
— Introducing some informal natural play elements.
— Improving existing pathways, new fencing, gateways and seating at different points.
— Planting with native ground species to improve biodiversity throughout.
A further series of consultation and engagement events will take place over the summer 2021 to help shape and develop the final design.
Clyde Gateway is working closely with Glasgow City Council, as landowner, to develop this project.
Subject to planning approval and funding availability it’s hoped work could early in 2022 with a view to completion by summer 2022.
