The City Deal investment in this are aims to deliver an integrated, attractive and resilient neighbourhood in the inner east end of Glasgow. The project combines site remediation, increasing connections into and out of the area and public realm improvements to unlock the potential of the locality.

The key elements of the project including enabling rail infrastructure; Calton Barras Action Plan and Collegelands and Bellgrove Abattoir (known as the Meatmarket) site remediation and access.

Community Benefits

The benefits to the community are:

  • Vacant and derelict land remediated and brought back into use
  • New footpaths, roads and cycle routes will be created
  • New homes built
  • Increased commercial space created.


Consultation is underway. Further community engagement (including stakeholds like the Calton Barras Action Plan) will take place as the project progresses and develops.

Meat Market Masterplan Pre-consultation

Glasgow City Council intends to submit a planning application for Meat Market Masterplan in Spring 2018.

The Masterplan will provide infrastructure and public realm to support future mixed used development on the former Bellgrove Abattoir site. The Masterplan aims to make a positive contribution to the local community and to reconnect the Inner East to the City Centre. The works are funded by the Glasgow City Region City Deal.

Proposal of Application Notice has now been submitted, a public event to show the proposed works was held on December 2017 at Dennistoun Library.  Please see the exhibition boards that were presented at the event for comments.

Due to the adverse weather conditions we experienced during the scheduled public event, it was unfortunately cancelled. The follow-on public event to show the further developed Masterplan will now take place on the 15 March 2018, 12noon to 8 pm at Dennistoun Library with opportunity to comment the proposals.  

Comments can be submitted to Collegelands Calton Barras by Email.  Formal comments can be made once an application for Planning Permission in Principle has been submitted.
