Govan Partick 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. Govan-Partick is one of the six areas identified.

The SDF for Govan-Partick sets out:

  • Vision for the area to be recognised as an urban district of well-connected but distinct neighbourhoods, providing a very high quality of life, creating a context for nationally significant economic development and a narrowing of social inequalities. The area will be recognised as a leading Innovation District, where technical excellence contributes to inclusive growth and the building of a liveable place
  • Spatial Design Strategy which sets out guidance 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 Govan-Partick Strategic Development Framework as Supplementary Guidance to the City Development Plan in February 2020.

The full adopted version of the Govan-Partick SDF (February 2020) can be accessed here.
