  • Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS)

    The Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) will provide a place-based strategy that guides future development across the Glasgow City Region. Key aspects include identification of networks of regionally significant centres and ensuring the spatial strategy identifies and responds to nationally and regionally recognised natural and historic areas and assets.

    Work on preparing the RSS will begin once statutory guidance is in place which is expected to be published by the Scottish Government in late 2023/early 2024.
