Since February 2017 Glasgow Eco Trust has been facilitating the Victoria Park Action Group which is a partnership of local organisations interested in the strategic development of Victoria Park.

Community Placemaking

In Autumn 2016 Glasgow City Council commissioned EKOS consultants to under a Community Placemaking for Victoria Park.

More than 40 people from 17 local organisations contributed to the Community Placemaking and the consultants produced a draft Strategic Plan for the Park along with a Draft Action Plan to be completed in order to produce the Strategic Plan.

Following the completion of the Victoria Park Community Placemaking process in February 2017 Glasgow Eco Trust offered to facilitate a further series of meetings in order to further develop the Action Plan and the Development Plan that had been drafted by the consultants.

The Victoria Park Action Group has been progressing the Action Plan over the past 18 months. All reports and paper relating to the Community Placemaking and the Action Group are available on the Council's website.

Update Report

GCPP IGF Ward 12 logoThe Action Group published the  Victoria Park Update Report in Spring 2018. 

The report gives an overview of what has been happening with regards to the park over the past couple of years, including the Community Placemaking, and what will be happening moving forward.

The report was part funded by the Ward 12 Victoria Park Area Partnership.

The Action Group is also undertaking a short survey to allow local people to have their say on the park and the proposed way forward.

Take the survey.

Next steps

The Action Group is still in the process of finishing the Action Plan and draft Strategic Plan for Victoria Park. The next step in the process is to establish a new charity - the Victoria Park Community Trust - in order to secure the necessary resources to deliver the Strategic Plan.
