Our new MP Patrick Grady came to meet with us on North Kelvin Meadow and The Children’s Wood. He has written to both the Government and the Council asking for various questions to be answered.
“Having visited the site on a number of occasions, and seeing it well used by constituents and the wider public, it seems clear to me that the North Kelvin Meadow is a valuable asset to the local community and the wider Glasgow North area. I believe it is important that the City Council does all that it can to protect important green spaces in the city. There is a clear feeling among the community that too much land is being given over to development when local residents, especially children and young people, need and want to spend more time outdoors for recreation and exercise. I believe that the Council must consider this when deciding on the applications that exist for the site, and prioritise plans that preserve green and wild space for the use of the whole community.”
Update on New City Vision planning application to build 90 residences on North Kelvin Meadow and The Children’s Wood.
The good news is that the time for objecting to New City Vision’s plan has been extended. This is because neighbour notification letters haven’t yet been issued. Once neighbours have been notified we’ll have a further 28 days to object. You can access more information about how to object here
