Strategic Listening – Update 1

List MSP Humza Yousaf hosted the first Strategic Listening event in the Scottish Parliament in April this year and requested an update on progress this week.

We were delighted to welcome him to join us in Fablevision where he met with PC Ashley Robinson and his colleague who are chief “bloggers” within Helen Street Police Station.

The first item on the agenda was an update on progress of We Are Listening and we were able to share progress with the Create Bus, working with young people and our excitement at working together as a team as the Govan Fair approaches (6th and 7th June are the dates).

The next topic for discussion was the development with plans for the Water Row area. The Local Authority has announced intention to build mixed use housing on the site (including the area where the last remaining Show People yards are situated).

An open meeting (possibly facilitated through the Scottish Urban Regeneration Alliance for Action programme) was agreed as the best way forward.

Watch this space for more news and information about when that might take place in late June 2014
