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.
