A potential development to transform part of a Balornock park into a thriving wetland has been hailed as an “important” step in tackling climate change.

Proposals have been put forward to turn a two-hectare portion of Broomfield Park into an urban marsh filled with seawater.

The move would help the creation of a “climate-tech village” to provide an environmental boost to some of the city’s most deprived areas – aimed at helping Glasgow reach its targets on carbon neutrality.

The project would create a “carbon sink” which would act as a natural flood barrier and “address contaminated land issues”.
