Easterhouse Locality Plan
Easterhouse is located around 6 miles east of the city centre. Thriving Places covers the area that runs up to the city boundary line in the North and the M8 to the South. This takes in Provanhall, Blairtummock, Easterhouse, Rogerfield, Lochend, Gartloch, Kildermorie, Commonhead and Bishoplochand.
Thriving Places was introduced in Easterhouse in 2016 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 Easterhouse.
During 2018/19 the organisations involved in Thriving Places in Easterhouse worked together to deliver a range of activities, including:
- A Community Safety Consultation with local people was carried out. A range of work was undertaken following this including fixed penalty notices issued for dog fouling and littering; CCTV patrols deployed; assisting local schools and nurseries to carry out clean ups; local park areas de-littered and fly tipping removed.
- Winterfest 2018 took place in The Lochs shopping centre in Easterhouse. This included community stalls; cooking demos; festive arts activities and a visit from Santa with a small gift. Feedback from the event was very positive.
- 10,000 copies of Easterhouse Today, a community newspaper was printed and distributed locally. The purpose of the newspaper is to signpost activities within the area and raise the profile of the area. The paper was co-produced with local young people.
