Event next week to look at future plans for Broomielaw District

Published: 18 November 2016

A drop-in event - Your Broomielaw - which will take place at The Ferry, 25 Anderston Quay, between 11am - 9pm on Thursday, 24 November, will offer everyone with an interest or stake in the area the opportunity to help shape its future.

As part of Glasgow City Council's City Centre Strategy, the council will develop a regeneration framework for each of the nine city centre districts.  Last year saw such a framework for the first district to be examined, Sauchiehall and Garnethill, and now it is the Broomielaw that will be considered.

These frameworks will guide activity that will develop these districts, each with their own characteristics and strengths, over the next decade.

Next week's event will allow anyone taking part to review the ideas from the initial event in October, and help refine proposals from that with a view to informing the prioritised action plan for the Broomielaw District Regeneration Framework.

Presentations and workshops will take place at 2pm and 6.30pm, allowing participants the chance to thoroughly review and refine the emerging ideas for the development of the district.

The Broomielaw district has attracted enormous investment over the past 15 years with the creation of the £1billion International Financial Services District, public realm and the Squiggly Bridge between the area and Tradeston.  Further development is very likely in the short and medium-term in and around the Broomielaw.

Councillor Frank McAveety, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "The Broomielaw District is a key area for the city centre and indeed the whole of Glasgow, home to some of the biggest companies we have, in a fantastic location beside the River Clyde and the emerging quarter at the SECC and the SSE Hydro.  While much has been achieved here since the start of the 21st Century, there is a lot to be done to fulfil the district's potential, and all those individuals and organisations with a stake in the Broomielaw's future are welcome to attend the event at The Ferry on 24 November."
