George Square consultation process slammed by MSP – the Glaswegian

A CITY politician wants the brakes 
to be put on the George Square
 revamp.

Glasgow Kelvin MSP Sandra White
 believes there has not been enough time for a thorough public consultation on the 
£15million project.

And she slammed the council’s efforts
to get the people of Glasgow involved.

Her comments come after The Glaswegian revealed last week that following discussions with fewer than 50 city residents, six
 shortlisted designs for the square will go on display at the Lighthouse later this month.

The council’s Phase 1 consultation has spoken with just 42 residents and seven 
stakeholders – less than half the number
 that White estimates have brought their
 concerns to her.

Speaking after a meeting about George Square with the council on Monday, the
 SNP politician said: “To me, 42 people is not a consultation, it’s just piecemeal – paying lipservice to the idea of consultation.

“Glasgow City Council aren’t listening
 to people. They should rethink their 
whole strategy.”
