Transforming Pollok Country Park – new public meeting 4th February 2020

The Transforming Pollok Country Park project team have today written to previous consultation attendees about a further consultation event, ahead of the start of the formal planning process.

We thought it’d be helpful to share the details we received. We’ve also setup this Facebook event if you’d like reminders.

Email received reads:

Following previous consultation events, Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Life would like to invite you to a public meeting on the access proposals being developed for Pollok Country Park, as part of the Transforming Pollok Country Park project.

The purpose of this meeting is to share the proposals, summarise recent changes in response to feedback from previous consultations, and outline current progress ahead of a formal planning submission later in February 2020.

Transforming Pollok Country Park Public Meeting

Tuesday 4 February, 6.30–7.45pm at Pollokshaws Burgh Hall, Pollokshaws Road, G43 1NE

The meeting will include a presentation lasting up to 45 minutes followed by up to 30 minutes for questions.

We hope you can join us. If you’re unable to attend but would like to find out more, please email us at PollokCountryParkTransformation@glasgowlife.org.uk.

Kind regards,

The Transforming Pollok Country Park Project Team
