Submission Documents: Motion by Bailie Anthony Carroll:- "Council notes disappointment that Glasgow Life have once again failed to plan a Fireworks Display at Glasgow Green. The Council understands that the fireworks were cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions, that COP26 caused the cancellation in 2021 but that 2022 and 2023 have just not been organised. Council notes that the annual Fireworks Display at Glasgow Green was a highly anticipated annual event that the whole city was able to attend for free and was the only event of this type and that it would be a significant cultural loss to the city. Council further notes that local communities face considerable disruption during this period with individual fireworks displays and that council have instructed work on the new legislative powers for 'no fireworks zones'. Council finally notes that fireworks generally cause significant hazard to animal health and for the fire service and as we move forward to consider restriction of private fireworks displays - a public, free to access fireworks display is essential for Glasgow. Council instructs the Chief Executive to write to Glasgow Life to ask them to urgently reconsider the decision to abandon the public Fireworks display in Glasgow Green." Help Icon
