LOCAL PLACE PLAN
WHAT IS A LOCAL PLACE PLAN?
Local Place Plans are plans developed by communities to show what they would like to see happen in their local area.
When a Local Place Plan is submitted to the council, departments such as Planning need to take it into account when considering future developments. The more people that take part, the stronger the plan will be and the more likely the area will get investment exactly where it's needed.
This new project 'Because We Say So' from the Kinning Park Complex will focus on the Paisley Road West corridor from Seaward Street near Paisley Road Toll to Ibrox Library on Midlock Street and the surrounding area. We can help put it together but it should be your plan!
It is supported by the Investing in Communities programme through the Scottish Government and will bring together the views and ideas of residents, businesses and community groups who want to take part.
WHO ARE KINNING PARK COMPLEX?
The Kinning Park Complex is an independent community organisation opposite Kinning Park Subway station, that primarily serves the G51 and G41 postcodes. We are a member led organisation and recently brought our home, an old early 1900’s red sandstone school building into community ownership.
It’s currently undergoing a big renovation to become a fantastic events and community space for you to use. You’ll be able to attend community events and if you want even start your own group!
We will reopen in Summer 2021 and we are keen to hear what you’d like to see in the space by taking part in the Local Place Plan.
We will be uploading the feedback forms in Punjabi / Urdu / Arabic very soon. Keep checking back or leave your contact details and we can let you know when they are ready! Filling in the forms will give you the chance to win vouchers to spend in local shops and businesses!
September 2020 - February 2021
Share your ideas with us so we can figure out a list of priorities based on the views of all residents who participate. We will also start to form a steering group of residents who would like to be more involved.
July 2021 - September 2021
Residents decide as a community on the most suitable solutions for our area by attending summer events in person, online or via information delivered to your door that present the potential solutions created by the steering group.
March 2021 - June 2021
The steering group, with support from us, will take the priority concerns and come up with potential solutions to be discussed with all residents who would like to take part in feeding back.
October 2021 - January 2022
The steering group, with support from us will draft a plan for approval by all residents who wish to take part.
Once the plan is approved we make it happen!
Why take part?
No one knows what an area needs more than the people who live there. Participate and encourage your neighbours and family to do the same.
Each completed questionnaire earns you another entry in the raffle, so the more you share the bigger your chance to win. There are great prizes to be won and vouchers to spend in your local places.
Local Place Plans are a new concept but so far areas that have done it right have found success. Let’s work together to achieve positive changes in our area too!
