This is our opportunity to make Waverley Park streets even better

We need your help to make our streets more pleasant for everyone to use, resolve the through-traffic problem and to help make our wee community the best it can be.

By the community, for the community. Tell us what needs to be done.

In response to demand from many residents, the Liveable Streets project seeks to design our streets to allow community priorities to flourish.

UPDATE 28 APRIL 2021

Glasgow City Council has advised us that tomorrow (weather dependent) they intend to (1) implement temporary barriers around the "keep clear" markings outside Shawlands Academy on Moss-side Road, similar to their existing measures at Shawlands Primary School; and (2) amend the white hatching markings at the Moss-side Road / Dinmont Road junction to improve visibility for school children, pedestrians and drivers.

Meanwhile, we are working on design options for our second stage of consultation for Waverley Park, which will be publish in the coming weeks - apologies for the delay.

UPDATE 31st March 2021

The design team is busy analysing all the responses to our first round of consultation in February and March, and preparing design options for the second round of consultation.

Thank you to everyone who responded with their experiences and ideas in February and March. With over 650 separate people visiting the consultation website and making 550 contributions, it was a huge response considering the population of Waverley Park is around 1,100 people!

We’re using that wealth of detailed information to prepare design options. Fixing traffic issues is clearly a priority, so that is our focus.

The next stage of consultation is scheduled to start in mid April, here on this website using images and video. We’ll explain how the design options came about, and we’ll ask you for specific feedback on each option. That will steer us towards a single proposal, which we’ll share with you in early summer for comment.

If you haven’t already signed up for email updates, please click here to be notified when the next stages of consultation go live.
