CGAP Projects

Since its inception in 2006, the Central Govan Action Plan has generated a multitude of projects, all aimed at making Central Govan attractive, vibrant and prosperous. Many of these projects are complete, others are being implemented and some, like a lovely pedestrian footbridge linking Govan with the north bank of the Clyde, are on our wish list. From multi-million pound housing developments to public art installations, archaeological excavations to subway modernisation, the project variety is enormous as is the number of people and organisations involved in implementing them. Use the filters to help find individual projects, or, if you really want to get into Govan, read them all. Go on, get in!
