Town Centre Strategies

The Land Planning Policy team is preparing a series of Town Centre Strategies for Bearsden, Bishopbriggs and Milngavie.  This is to support Policy 11 of the Local Development Plan (LDP) by setting out a long-term vision for each town centre. The strategies will help to provide our approach to the various issues faced by our town centres, giving them the best chance to thrive and prosper.

At the end of 2016, we carried out a series of consultations with those people who are most familiar with each centre. This included an online survey, workshops, drop-in events and pop-up stalls. The aim was to find out what the main issues were within each centre, and what the main areas are that will need to be looked at in the future plans. You can view the results of the consultations in the Document’s section.

We are continuing to work with local community groups, town centre businesses and other interested parties as part of creating the draft Strategies, but if you have any comments or questions please contact us at:
