The Clyde Gateway is a massive regeneration programme focussed on an area of 3.3 square miles around the communities of Bridgeton, Dalmarnock and Parkhead in Glasgow, and Shawfield and Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire.
The regeneration programme aims to encourage new businesses and visitors to the area, making the Clyde Gateway a great place in which to live, work and invest. Local communities will see the image and perception of the area transformed as physical improvements to the environment enhance day to day life.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games has fast tracked investment and development in the area which is the location of the Athlete’s Village, NISA stadium and Emirates ‘Chris Hoy’ Velodrome.
Central to the physical regeneration of the Clyde Gateway is the creation of the Green Network (Integrated Green Infrastructure). The Green Network will ensure those living and working in the area can move around easily on foot or by bike, and that the Clyde Corridor is maximised as a leisure and wildlife resource. Additionally, integrated Green Infrastructure will mean that new developments are well adapted to future climate change impacts.
To help ensure these aims are met the GCV Green Network Partnership has developed a number of strategies which identify opportunities for delivery of the Green Network and Green Infrastructure throughout the Clyde Gateway.
