Glasgow City Centre Transformation Plan

Get in touch

What is it?

Glasgow City Council is in the process of producing the Glasgow City Centre Transformation Plan (CCTP) which replace the current pdf icon City Centre Transport Strategy 2014 to 2024 [7Mb]. The CCTP will provide a clear framework for transport decision-making in Glasgow City Centre and help make it a place where everyone can thrive. The CCTP ties in with other key policy documents such as the overarching Glasgow Transport Strategy, the city wide Active Travel Strategy and the City Centre Strategic Development Framework.

A Public Conversation on Glasgow's Transport Future was held for six weeks last year. Key findings of the Public Conversation can be read here. Feedback received from stakeholders during this consultation exercise largely influences the CCTP which will take issues and opportunities into account. 


The CCTP Public Consultation is now live and open to the general public. We would welcome your views on the CCTP in its current draft and encourage everyone to take part in this survey before the deadline, which is set for noon on Monday 12 September 2022. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and can be accessed here.

The CCTP document, including reader-friendly and translated versions, can be accessed in the "CCTP Documents" tab below. You are encouraged to read the draft CCTP before undertaking this survey.

During this seven-week public consultation period, there will also be a public drop-in session which will display the CCTP plans. Members of staff will be present on the day to help and answer any questions you may have about the CCTP. This public drop-in session will take place between 1pm and 7pm on Thursday 18th August 2022 at the University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre, 99 George Street, Glasgow, G1 1RD. All members of the public are welcome to attend the exhibit.
