The Vision

The Future Glasgow team would like to pass on sincere thanks from the Leader of Glasgow City Council, Councillor Gordon Matheson, and the wider core team, to those of you who have participated in one of the events or submitted your views by postcard or online – it was extremely valuable and much appreciated.


The public engagement work was completed at the end of June 2011 and engaged directly with over 2700 people at over 40 events.  In parallel, a number of topic inquiry workshops were held – these brought together experts in particular topic fields (health, employment, transport, housing, culture/leisure, city centre, place-making, sustainable development, education and economy) to explore trends in those areas, key issues, and other factors that are projected to affect Glasgow or cities in general in the years to come.


We gained a huge amount of insightful and challenging material at the public engagement events and topic workshops, and the reports have now been finalised.  These are now available along with the draft vision here.


Following the completion of the workshops and the public engagement work, we held a one day Plenary in August which was attended by all the workshop chairs and Future Glasgow core team; this brought together the findings and recommendations of the work undertaken to date and allowed an opportunity for detailed discussion on potential vision priorities and themes.  


All responses gained for the Future Glasgow city vision between April and July 2011 have been considered during the drafting of the Future Glasgow city vision report. This report can now be accessed from the Downloads section of the website, along with the reports from the public engagement programme and the technical inquiries.


The consultation period on the draft Future Glasgow city cision report closed 10 February 2012. The team are now reviewing all comments received before editing the final document.
