Over the next two decades Clyde Gateway will see significant social, economic and physical change in an area that is 2,070 acres in size.
Where it is
Partly in South Lanarkshire, near the heart of Glasgow on the banks of the Clyde, this is an area full of potential. The construction of the M74 Northern Extension and the East End Regeneration Route will stimulate growth and competitiveness.
The hosting of the Commonwealth Games in 2014 will bring new opportunities to all of Glasgow, but particularly to the Clyde Gateway area as it will be the location of new sports facilities as well as the Athletes' Village.
The partners in this project, Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council, Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Government, have formed an urban regeneration company to lead development. They have a shared vision for Clyde Gateway, and one that is supported in the local community:
Clyde Gateway will become a dynamic and sought after location with a strong sense of community. It will attract major investment and establish itself as one of the foremost places in the West of Scotland to live and work.
What will it do?
Clyde Gateway will:
- deliver £1.5 billion of private sector investment
- build 400,000 square meters of business space
- create 21,000 jobs - with many of them targeted at local residents
- construct 10,000 new houses - from starter flats to family homes
- increase the population in East Glasgow/South Lanarkshire by 20,000 people
Clyde Gateway is a project to deliver change over the next two decades, with a legacy for years beyond that.
