In the Herald today: Scottish Government interest in the Meadow

North Kelvin Meadow and Children's Wood

Jun 17, 2013 — Great article in the Herald today about the Scottish Government's recent letter to Glasgow City Council. It directs them, if they decide to grant planning permission, to send to the Government all details of the application, including all our representations and how the decision properly addresses them. A government source noted that this move is very unusual. It paves the way for a Government "call-in" - the action we've been calling for with this petition.
