The Bishopbriggs Town Centre Public Realm Plan consultation ran over the summer of 2021, with 750 people responding - answering over 6,340 questions and providing more than 1,000 detailed comments.

The Plan is a key part of the Council's £34.88 million City Deal Place and Growth Programme approved last year by the Glasgow City Region Cabinet.

Consultation has commenced and we need your help! 

The first element of the City Deal project progressing to public consultation is Bishopbriggs Town Centre Regeneration, with people and groups offered the chance to engage on Bishopbriggs Public Realm Plan between Monday 21 June and Sunday 15 August 2021.
We want to make Bishopbriggs town centre a more pleasant place to spend time outside, with more things going on to attract more people, and easier to get to by foot, cycle and wheel. The aim is to help town centre businesses and to make it safer and more comfortable to get around without needing a car. 
Help us work out how to make your town centre’s streets and spaces the best they can be! Get involved by answering the question and having your say on our Consultation interactive Storymap:  
For people without online access, paper copies of the consultation will be available to 'Connect and Collect' from Bishopbriggs Library. Call 0141 777 3155: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, 10am-1pm.
All responses and feedback will help us develop a Public Realm Plan for the town centre’s streets and spaces, which will then go out to further consultation later this year.
