Glasgow ‘stalled’ spaces

This post comes to you from EcoArtScotland

Glasgow City Council is offering small grants to community groups to improve stalled spaces including:

  • Land earmarked for development though delayed e.g. economic circumstances.
  • Vacant/Derelict Land
  • Open space – yet undeveloped

It’s also worth looking at Greenspace Scotland for policy and practice on ‘stalled spaces.’
