Community led environmental projects in the Southside of Glasgow.

North Toryglen

The North Toryglen green space & active travel design project seeks to improve local walking and cycling experiences and enhance green spaces in and around North Toryglen.

Since November 2018 we had led a number of consultation sessions and engagement activities. We have listened to your ideas to help produce designs. These designs will be available to view online from April 15th-30th. 

The design proposals seek to:

    • Improve and extend local walking & cycling routes
    • Provide better linkages between residential areas, local facilities & public transport services
  • Improve the quality of green spaces in the area for people & wildlife

Latest designs

The latest designs are now available to view online:

  1. Toryglen Masterplan
  2. Toryglen Access Diagram
  3. Toryglen Park
  4. Wetland Corridor
  5. Malls Mire Local Nature Reserve

Or view all designs as one document.

Once you have viewed the designs please complete the online feedback form here.

These designs are available for comment from April 15th-30th 2019. 

The designs include provision for natural play and outdoor exercise. Additional proposals for a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) are being taken forward by the North Toryglen Transformational Regeneration Area Local Delivery Group.

Initial concept designs 

Initial concept designs were produced for the early stages of the consultation and can be viewed here. These concept designs acted as a springboard for the ongoing consultation project. They were based on five themes:
1) Access & active travel
2) Green areas & corridors
3) Natural play and MUGA (Multi-use games area)
4) Community spaces & recreation
5) Natural wetlands & sustainable drainage ponds

Upcoming consultation events

This is an opportunity to help shape design proposals and the more community input we receive, the better chance of getting ideas off the ground!
