Queensland Celebrates Success
Southside Housing Association’s Alison Devlin and Queensland Gardens residents celebrated their successful application to our Green Infrastructure fund on 17 August together with local MSP Humza Yousaf and Ivan Clark, SNH’s Placemaking Team Manager.
Councillor Kenny McLean, Glasgow City Council Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm, said: “Queensland Court and Gardens reflects perfectly the huge value of partnership working that will see urban greenspace otherwise not used to its full potential, vibrantly transformed to the benefit of the local community.
“As part of the Glasgow City Deal funded Surface Water Management Plan for Hillington and Cardonald, integrating drainage interventions with work to enhance the landscape in this way will reduce flood risk and open up new possibilities for further regeneration in the area.”
Alison Devlin, Chair of Southside Housing Association’s Cardonald Neighbourhood Committee, said: “I am delighted to see this further investment of funds to improve the play and parking facilitates as well as helping to deal with flooding in the area. I look forward to seeing the benefits this brings to the local community.”
Humza Yousaf MSP said: “I’m delighted that Southside Housing have been awarded funds to help further regenerate Queensland Court and Gardens within my constituency. This funding will not only improve play and parking facilities on site, it will also complement Glasgow City Council's city-wide investment to mitigate against the impacts of flooding.
“We all have a role to play in tackling the global climate emergency, I am delighted that Southside Housing is playing their part.”
