Woodside Making Places

LocationGlasgow

ClientQCHA

StatusPlanning submitted July 2021

The Woodside Making Places project is an ambitious environmental, placemaking-led regeneration of the Woodside area of Glasgow. These proposals have been developed from an options study by our friends at Collective Architecture completed in 2018, which promoted a plan of improvements and was funded through the Making Places Fund by the Scottish Government.

Making Places will transform Woodside into a climate-adapted neighbourhood, creating an attractive, multi-functional green infrastructure network with a strong sense of place, in which cycle routes, diverse habitats, sustainable rainwater drainage, vibrant doorstep play and edible landscapes provide a rich environment within which residents and nature can flourish.

We are being informed by engagement in the local community, to guide design decisions and ensure needs are identified and met, and our ambition is for local residents to be involved in the planning and future management of Woodside’s landscape, generating activities, personalisation and a sense of ownership and control that endures.

Planning was submitted to Glasgow City Council in July 2021 after a significant and extended period of remote consultation due to Covid19, along with detailed design work with Civic Engineers.

Work is programmed to begin on site in 2022.
