Demolish the Talisman in Springburn

The Talisman pub has been a derelict eyesore in Springburn for several years. It is also a dangerous site - it has attracted local youths in the area who have climbed the structure and it was also been set on fire in 2012. 

MSPs and councillors have led a long campaign for action to be taken on the long-standing eyesore. However, Glasgow City Council has been unwilling to demolish the site, despite its dangerous nature and complaints from many residents. Glasgow City Council cannot do this without permission from the owners of the site and therefore must be willing to enter into negotiations to see the site demolished.

Springburn Community Council are pushing for The Talisman site and shops to be demolished and replaced by a temporary green space to help attract someone to buy the land. Developers have displayed interest in the property, but due to the owner being unwilling to let it go, this has been impossible. The Talisman is a manifestation of a culture of neglect and blatant disregard for the health, wellbeing and future of Springburns residents and it needs to go.
