A masterplan of the Sighthill regenration area

The £250 million regeneration of Sighthill – the biggest such project in the UK outside of London – is “10 to 20 years” ahead of schedule, Glasgow City Council has said.

The regeneration of Sighthill forms a significant part of the work Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Housing Association and the Scottish Government have been doing to regenerate eight key areas of the city.

Jackie Harvey, lead project manager, told Glasgow Live: “Sighthill is already starting to change dramatically and that will continue over the next couple of years.

“The work we are doing will clean up a lot of the site and effectively put in a neighbourhood.”

Planning permission has already been granted for up to 650 new homes, a new community campus school, commercial facilities and a public square.

A road bridge linking the area to north and west Glasgow will be completed next year.
