About Glasgow West Community Map

Acerca del Mapa Verde Abierto

Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) wanted to make it easier for people to find out what is going on in their community. Developing a community map was seen as an effective and interactive way to collect and share information about the plethora of organisations and wide range of activities happening in the local area.

It is hoped that more people will get involved with local organisations and that those organisations with similar agendas will be able to work together more effectively to have a greater impact on the local communities and people that we serve.

The map has been developed with cnsideration of the Transition Towns model which focuses on sustainability, environment and community.

Development of the community map
The map will be developed in different phases.
    1) Phase One - launch of the initial community map and promotion throughout the local area and beyond. Features include:
    - Community organisations especially those that offer volunteering opportunities
    - Community assets including community centres, parks, green spaces and assets that encourage green living
    - Existing and potential areas for community growing
    - Eye sores and areas that require improvement
    2) Phase Two - recruitment of more collaborators and team members to expand and increase the content and usefulness of the map across the current geographical area
    3) Phase Three - expansion both geographically as well as creating specific thematic maps, including the production of hard copies of the community map

We believe that the community map can make a significant contribution to DRCET achieving our vision and mission.

Our vision is of vibrant, thriving and resilient communities where people are inspired and empowered to get active, get involved and make a difference for their communities, future generations and the planet as well as helping us.

Our mission is to protect and enhance the local environment and to increase the wellbeing and resilience of local people and communities.

It's great for walking dogs, children and (sometimes) finding solitude

This development will be a Tesco Development Site - Glasgow Harbour Anónimo

This development will be a sure fire killer of local traders within a large radius of it. The only way local people will win this battle to save their local shops and traders is if they boycott this giant Tesco.
Many campaigns have suceeded in other parts of the U.K. see: www.tescopoly.com
Indeed as a founder member of the stop tesco owning Partick group www.stoptesco.info and steering committee, back in 2007, the problems raised back then have not gone away.

An "Environmental Impact Assessment" and "Traffic Management Assessment?" were what we fought to get carried out by Tesco. Have they produced them yet?

Earlier proposals of traffic lights placed around every intersection of the Thornwood/Sawmill roundabout would be crazy.

So lets keep our local traders alive and think twice before rushing to this monster which is killing our communities.
