Glasgow's tourism strategy

Glasgow City Council has produced a new tourism strategy for the city, which is now out for public consultation. Its contents should be of interest for anyone involved in shaping the built form of Glasgow, as it touches on the contribution of the public realm and looks at the potential of the Clyde Waterfront and Merchant City areas. It aims to deliver a 60%-80% growth in tourism revenue during the next ten years, and - seriously - there’s also a promise to ‘encourage an alfresco culture’. Brrr!
