City launches environmental plan
George Square
Glasgow residents can have their say on the masterplan
Walkers, cyclists, horse riders, runners and other outdoor enthusiasts are being asked to shape Glasgow's environmental policy.

Glasgow City Council has urged locals to help them develop a masterplan for the city's rivers and paths.

The aim of the plan is to create a 'Connected Glasgow' where residents can easily cross the city by foot, bike or other non-motorised means.

Officials said that the consultation was due to end on 31 August.

The council said that the Glasgow Core Paths Plan would influence the development of the city's path network over the next five years.

To meet the needs of canoeists and rowers, the River Kelvin, White Cart and the River Clyde, upstream of Glasgow Green, are designated as water paths.
