Targets & Strategies

Glasgow Community Plan

The Glasgow Community Plan has been developed by partners in the city to articulate the focus and priority areas where joint action can make a real difference. The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 requires the Partnership to publish a Local Outcomes Improvement Plan that sets out shared priorities for the city and where improvements are planned.  

The Glasgow Community Plan and the Glasgow Community Action Plan 2018-20, which implements the Glasgow Community Plan, can be found here. Three focus areas are identified: economic growth; resilient communities; a fairer more equal Glasgow. There are two additional priority areas: childcare and transport.

The Community Plan is published along with 10 locality plans setting out how issues within specific communities across the city will be tackled; these plans can be found at: www.glasgowcpp.org.uk/thrivingplaces.

Glasgow City Council Strategic Plan

This plan sets out the priority themes and commitments that will be delivered between 2017 and 2022 by the council, its services and arm's length organisations. It aims to deliver a step change in how the Council:

  • Promote human rights and reduce inequalities across Glasgow.
  • Improve the life chances and choices for all our citizens.
  • Embed social justice in our policy making.
  • Empower our citizens, giving them a stake, and a say, in what happens in their local communities and communities of interest.

The plan can be accessed here.

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport is the statutory regional transport partnership for west central Scotland.

SPT's Regional Transport Strategy aims to ensure everyone across Strathclyde has good access to public transport.

Glasgow City Council has a Glasgow City Centre Transport Strategy for the period 2014-2024. 

The most recent cycling plan for the city is Glasgow's strategic plan for cycling 2016-2025.

Glasgow Health Commission recommendations

The Glasgow Health Commission concluded its investigation into the city's health with the release of 20 key recommendations in 2009, and progress in these areas will continue to be monitored. Recommendations concerning transport in Glasgow include:

  • supporting green travel plans
  • shifting emphasis and resources towards safe, active and sustainable modes of transport
  • creating mandatory 20mph zones in residential areas

Scottish Government

In 2007, the Scottish Government launched its first National Performance Framework (NPF), a ten year vision through which to measure national wellbeing. Ten years later, and with the outcomes approach placed in statute through the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, a public review of the National Outcomes for Scotland was conducted. 

The revised NPF has been developed with the people of Scotland to reflect national values and aspirations for the future. It has also been formulated to link with and promote Scotland’s commitment to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals which are aimed at improving wellbeing across the world. Further details of the revised national performance framework and accompanying 81 monitoring indicators can been found here.
