Sustainable Glasgow – a contradiction?

One thing that strikes me about yesterdays launch of Sustainable Glasgow, is a contradiction over vacant land.

The report recommends an urban woodland strategy, with community involvement, and creating urban woodland on vacant ground. All well and good. However Glasgow City Council (one of the partners of Sustainable Glasgow) has been heavy-handed and litigious with The North Kelvin Meadow – a group who have taken over derelict land and build raised beds, wildflower meadows and woodland.
