Lambhill and Milton
The Lambhill and Milton Thriving Place area is made up of three distinct neighbourhoods -Milton, Lambhill and Cadder. The area is in the North West of the city, about 2.5 miles from Glasgow city centre. Much of the area is farmland and wetland, with almost all of the local population living south of Possil Loch.
Thriving Places was introduced in 2017 to Lambhill and Milton to help improve the quality of life of people who live and work here. This can mean trying to improve health and wellbeing, community safety, education, employment, income, housing,the local environment or access to services. It can also mean encouraging local involvement in decision making. This 10-year plan will tell you more about what Thriving Places is doing in Lambhill and Milton.
How You Can Get Involved
If you would like to get involved or for further information on Lambhill/Milton Thriving Place, please contact your Community Connector at North Glasgow Healthy Living Community: firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout 2018/19 the Community Connector has engaged with the community and learnt about local aspirations and concerns. As a result, 5 sub-groups have been developed to work towards a plan to achieve the wishes of local people in Lambhill, Milton and Cadder.
There have been a number of local events at which local people have been engaged. For example, Autumn in the Square and Spring in the Square have emphasised Licensable Square as a gathering space for local communities, with both events providing opportunities for free outdoor play for families. The events planning group is working to provide more community activities and events in the future.
A Community Budgeting event took place in January 2019 which saw 10 projects across the area receive funding and 40 local people involved in the voting. Local people stated that it was a great way for them to find out about local projects and meet new people.
