We are rolling out a consultation on the future of Govan Graving Docks. We wish to engage stakeholders and others with an interest in the derelict Glasgow site, at both local, regional and national level and within the maritime sector, in shaping an alternative vision for its future.
Early in 2016 we carried out a series of surveys on the future of Govan Graving Docks as the first stage of our consultation process. You can find the results of these on our surveys page >>
A series of online petitions have enabled us to gauge the depth and breadth of public feeling about the future of Govan Graving Docks. Along with the results of the survey these have enabled us to demonstrate strong public opposition to housing development on the docks.
In March 2017 we set up stalls in Govan to hand out leaflets to help raise local awareness of the plight of Govan Graving Docks, and speak to locals face to face about the site.
We found people overwhelmingly opposed to housing development on the docks and very much in favour of creating a maritime park and seeing ships in the docks once again.
We are preparing to run a design competition for final year degree architecture students (and possibly others) to present masterplan proposals for a maritime park at Govan Graving Docks as the key stage of our consultation process.
The competition entries will feed into the next stage of our consultation process through exhibitions and public/stakeholder feedback. For more information see the competition page...
