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.

  • Improving Public Transport: High Street Station
  • Improving local infrastructure and Connectivity: Meat Market Road Infrastructure
  • Collegelands and Meat Market Site: Meat Market- Site Remediation
