George Square, Glasgow, G2 1DU
Clyde Gateway is a major urban regeneration company located in the east end of Glasgow. The scope of their work extends into the east end of Glasgow and South Lanarkshire, including the communities of Bridgeton, Dalmarnock, Rutherglen and Shawfield. Compared to many other parts of Glasgow and the West of Scotland, the communities in Clyde Gateway experienced decades of neglect and suffered from a lack of sustained investment. Clyde Gateway was set up in 2007 to tackle these issues and to foster investment in infrastructure, offices, workspaces and homes.
The bus tour will take in a number of Clyde Gateway’s success stories including a brief introduction to the Athletes' Village constructed for the 2014 Commonwealth Games as a taster for those attending the RTPI Scotland Annual Conference on 7th October. Also included will be the Emirates Area and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome as well as regeneration and public realm improvements projects in Bridgeton and many more. Clyde Gateway will also discuss what is in the pipeline for the east end in terms of further transformational projects.
The tour will begin at 5.30pm, leaving from George Square.
More information on Clyde Gateway can be found on their website.
This event is FREE for RTPI Members, and £5 for non-members.
