Up to 500 homes can now be built on land to the north of the Glasgow, Scotland city centre after a canal regeneration scheme was agreed upon.
Glasgow City Council’s Executive Committee approved grant agreements with partner organisations to regenerate areas and communities along both sides of the Forth and Clyde Canal.
These grant agreements – with Scottish Canals and BIGG Regeneration – will help deliver funding worth over £11m for the next stages of a surface water management programme that will enable land near the canal to be regenerated, and the development of the vacant 100 Acre Hill former distillery site in Port Dundas.
The development of the 100 Acre Hill site is key to the regeneration of the north canal area as it will hugely improve connectivity between the city centre, Sighthill, and Possilpark.
