The Collegelands Calton Barras (CCB) project, with investment of £27m, aims to deliver an integrated, attractive and resilient neighbourhood within the inner east end of Glasgow.

The key elements of the project include enabling rail infrastructure; Calton Barras Action Plan and Collegelands and Bellgrove Abattoir (known as the Meatmarket) site remediation and access.

Community Benefits

The benefits to the community are:

  • site remediation
  • increased connectivity (to overcome major physical barriers to movement)
  • public realm improvements to create a far more cohesive and navigable area that unlocks the potential of the locality.
  • Improved lighting features


Consultation is underway. Further community engagement (including stakeholds like the Calton Barras Action Plan) will take place as the project progresses and develops.

Meat Market Masterplan Pre-consultation

Glasgow City Council intends to submit a planning application for Meat Market Masterplan in Spring 2018.

The Masterplan will provide infrastructure and public realm to support future mixed used development on the former Bellgrove Abattoir site. The Masterplan aims to make a positive contribution to the local community and to reconnect the Inner East to the City Centre. The works are funded by the Glasgow City Region City Deal.

Proposal of Application Notice has now been submitted, a public event to show the proposed works was held on December 2017 at Dennistoun Library.  Please see the exhibition boards that were presented at the event for comments.

Due to the adverse weather conditions we experienced during the scheduled public event, it was unfortunately cancelled. The follow-on public event to show the further developed Masterplan will now take place on the 15 March 2018, 12noon to 8 pm at Dennistoun Library with opportunity to comment the proposals.  

Comments can be submitted to Collegelands Calton Barras by Email.  Formal comments can be made once an application for Planning Permission in Principle has been submitted.
