About the Project

St Paul's Youth Forum has  been awarded a grant by the charity Sustrans to make it safer and easier for people to walk, cycle and wheel in North East Glasgow. 

To make it easier and more pleasant for people to walk, cycle and wheel, it is proposed to make some changes to street layouts and regulations such as building continuous pavements, creating segregated cycleways and adding planters to streets.

For now, the project is limited to the area shown on the map. The aim is that the project will eventually link up to other projects such as the Avenues in the city centre. 

Glasgow City Council is now managing the project and asking for more feedback on detailed designs they have developed via this survey. Glasgow City Council has also created a storymap providing more information and up-to-date designs. More information about the project can also be found on the council's website.

Thank you for all your contributions so far! :) 

Your contributions have made an immense difference to the project as they allowed the project team to gain detailed insights, identify specific needs and desires, highlight local challenges and create and change designs accordingly. 

 

Thanks to you, St Paul's Youth Forum managed to advance the project from Stage 0 in 2020 all the way to Stage 3 in 2022!

 

As planned, the management of the project was transferred to Glasgow City Council in 2023, who have since been busy creating detailed designs based on communities' feedback, regulations, and local and national policies. 

 

Glasgow City Council is now asking for more feedback on the detailed designs they developed via this survey. Glasgow City Council has also created a storymap providing more information and up-to-date designs. More information about the project can also be found on the council's website

 

We greatly thank everyone who has come forward and provided us with feedback. It has only been possible to advance this project due to the immense effort of local communities.

Wha you have said so far

What you have said so far

 

We asked for your views about the project between January - October 2021 and between January 2022 - September 2022. 

We sent out an info pack to all 1750 households in the project area, produced two videos with local residents, were very active on social media, conducted many surveys, closed Langdale Street for two days, and basically didn't talk about anything else during that time. We also held, and continue to hold, meetings with key stakeholders such as local schools, Transport Scotland, Glasgow City Council, STP, and First Bus.

Amazingly, between January and May 2021, 623 filled out surveys, came along to the online community consultation events, called the phone number, e-mailed us or commented on the Commonplace. 

Between June and October 2021, another 640 people filled out further online and paper surveys, came along to our stalls in the community and participated in our workshops, primarily to provide feedback on the illustrations shown above. 

Between January and October 2022, 108 people provided us with feedback. Please note that this number is much lower due to the fact that outreach was targeted at specific protected characteristics, including organisations representing certain groups. 

We are very grateful for all the feedback we have received. Below is a summary of the results of the feedback we received between January to October 2021. Click on the galleries to explore what people have said. 

General Sentiment  

The North East was rated poorly for active travel. Pupils also thought it was very important to tackle Climate Change. Lot's of people talked about the poor state of the roads. 

Barriers to Active Travel 

The speed and volume of traffic, lack of routes and the condition of paths were the main barriers to active travel in the area. Many children said they experienced scary moments with cars. 

Spaces for People Interventions

The interventions were supported in principle. People were unhappy about the quality and aesthetic of the interventions. The 'orcas' were particular unpopular. 

Support for Ideas

Support for all proposals was very high. This included the sketches exemplifying what changed streets could look like. The sketches were received very positively by survey respondents, with only a small number of people indicating that they would be unhappy about the changes.
