Community Council special meeting

On 28th February the local Community Council (North Kelvin) held a special meeting to discuss the proposed development with the Council’s preferred developers, New City Vision Ltd (NCV). Members of the public were encouraged to attend and help provide feedback to the Community Councillors.

Both the developers and North Kelvin Meadow campaign made presentations.

However, despite an invitation, there was no representative from Glasgow City Council present at the meeting.

It was clear from the outset that the overwhelming majority of people attending the meeting felt strongly that the development should not go ahead.

Sadly, the Community Council did not feel able to reflect this strong indication of local opinion and decided to pass a motion which stated that they were not yet convinced by the development. Whilst this does not rule out an eventual outright objection to the development, it does fall short of the support that the community had hoped to receive from their local Community Council.

The meadow campaign hopes to continue to work with the Community Council over the coming weeks to ensure that the local community’s views are fully understood.

The official minutes of the meeting are available from the North Kelvin Community Council web site here:
