Have your say on restoring the Glazert Water

Residents are being offered a further opportunity to have their say on a new river restoration project planned for the Glazert Water. An online public engagement on proposals for the Glazert River Restoration Project in the heart of Lennoxtown opens on Friday 30 October. The project is the result of a study commissioned by Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Scottish Government to restore natural waterways. The aim is to provide flood risk benefits to the River Kelvin and to reduce the likelihood of flooding to communities in Kirkintilloch and Torrance. The restoration work will physically restore the Glazert watercourse, enhance the water quality and revitalise the wildlife corridor serving the communities of north Kirkintilloch, Milton of Campsie, Lennoxtown, Clachan of Campsie and Haughhead. The Council appointed partners cbec eco-engineering (cbec), who specialise in river restoration and started work in September 2019. Now residents are being asked to view the details and share their views on the Council’s website, A Proposal Of Application (POA) for the project has now been submitted to the Council’s Planning Department and can be viewed here - The community is now being invited to view the proposals and share their feedback as part of a further engagement.
