Inviting Place to Live: What Next?
- People Make Glasgow Home – housing led regeneration
Patrick Flynn, Head of Housing & Regeneration Services, Glasgow City Council
In this session, Patrick will present the Council’s ambitious commitment to deliver 25,000 homes by 2050. This demand comes from the city’s growing population; the need to create vibrant communities through quality place-making; and to attract inward investment to support Glasgow’s thriving economy.
- Port Dundas: seeds of change – culture and creativity
Richard Millar, Director of Heritage Enterprise & Sustainability, Scottish Canals
The canal was also part of Glasgow’s industrial past. It is changing into a place of creativity and new urban living. Richard will give an insight to the way in which a new vision for urban pioneers – creative businesses, urban sports, the arts and cultural education – puts a spotlight onto the canal flowing through it.
