North Glasgow Strategic Development Framework

Get in touch


The Glasgow City Development Plan identifies six areas within the City that require a Strategic Development Framework (SDF) in order to coordinate development activity over the short, medium and long term. North Glasgow is one of the six areas identified.

The SDF for North Glasgow sets out:

  • A Vision for the area to become a healthy, high quality and sustainable place in which to live, work and visit.
  • A Spatial Design Strategy which contains a series of Principles that seek to support planning initiatives and projects, inform the design of proposals, and assist in the determination of planning applications.
  • An Action Programme to progress planning initiatives.


The Council adopted the North Glasgow Strategic Development Framework as Supplementary Guidance to the City Development Plan on 17th April 2023.

The adopted version of the North SDF (April 2023) can be accessed here.
