A proposal to regenerate Drumchapel town centre is among several Scottish projects to have been successful in obtaining Levelling Up funding from the UK Government.

Awarded a total of £15 million, the project aims to reinvigorate the local high street and create a quality environment at the heart of the neighbourhood.

It includes the creation of enhanced community facilities, new housing to meet local needs, better walking and cycling routes connecting the local shops and services and adaptions to address localised flooding and provide green space.

Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “The success of this bid is testament to the hard work of officers, local members and the whole community – and their ambition for Drumchapel. I’m confident the project will secure real economic, environmental and social benefits by delivering enhanced community facilities, better connected local shops and services, and enable new housing and green space.”
