Glasgow City Council has now approved District Regeneration Frameworks (DRFs) for both the Blythswood and Central districts of the city centre.

These are the fourth and fifth in a series of nine frameworks, which will shape future development in the city centre.

Aims of the Blythswood plan include reducing the negative impact of the motorway and addressing a lack of “quality” greenspace.

Suggestions include re-opening Blythswood Square to the public and upgrading Charing Cross and Anderston train stations.

And the Central scheme outlines plans to take cars away from the city centre, redesign George Square and revamp Hielanman’s Umbrella. Also suggested a ‘green’ pedestrian loop linking George Square and Blythswood Square with a planned riverside park.
