Improvments coming to Saracen Street
I am delighted an example of excellent partnership work in Possil that I have been pleased to support has had a key funding boost. The partnership is between local businesses, community groups, NG Homes and the City Council. Partners have been developing a business improvement district, a funding mechanism from Scotland’s Towns Partnership who are funded by the Scottish Government. Everyone is keen to play their part in improving the local area and make it a more welcoming and attractive place to visit.
The money secured is part of £3.1m the SNP Scottish Government cash which was received by Glasgow City Council as its share of a £50m Town Centre Fund in the Scottish Budget I voted for some months ago in the Scottish Parliament.
My thanks to local businesses and community groups for their passion and support to improve Possil and to local councillor Allan Gow who helped approve the funds.
