The board and committee of Govan Docks Regeneration Trust welcome the announcement that Glasgow City Council has been awarded £2.4M from the Scottish Government Vacant and Derelict Land Investment Programme for Govan Graving Docks.
We are delighted that this will enable the first steps in restoring the graving dock site and pave the way for the site to pass into community ownership.
We are preparing to hold a seminar soon to share research from our extensive network and broad ideas about the future of the docks. This will involve presentations about the work of artists, academic researchers and grass roots individuals and organisations, who have looked at the docks over the past decade, as well as a series of discussion groups. Community stakeholders will be invited to attend as well as experts from a range of public and conservation bodies to help inform the discussions.
We look forward to hearing more soon about the nature and detail of the works that the council aim to fund with this investment.
