PRESENTATION OF RIVER CORRIDOR SUPPLEMENTARY DEVELOPMENT GUIDE
Purpose of Report
The purpose of this report is to advise Committee of the progress of the River Clyde Flood Management
Strategy commission and to present, for approval, the River Corridor Supplementary Development Guide.
I recommend that Committee:
i) notes the progress of the River Clyde Flood management Strategy project; and,
ii) Approves the River Corridor Supplementary Development Guide for issue as a document which
gives guidance for new developments on the River Clyde.1 Introduction
The aim of this report is to set out progress to date in the River Clyde Flood Management Strategy
(RCFMS), the delivery mechanisms proposed and most specifically present for approval the River
Corridor Supplementary Development Guide, a copy of which is attached.2 Background to the Study
The Halcrow and W.A. Fairhurst & Partners Joint Venture (HFJV) was appointed by Glasgow City
Council (GCC) in May 2003 to undertake the RCFMS. The study adopted a catchment wide
approach to help deliver a strategy for the council to manage flood risk along the River Clyde.
The aim of RCFMS was to identify flood risk from the River Clyde within the City and beyond and
to develop design solutions within Glasgow.
The results of this study will play a fundamental role in supporting the regeneration of the River
Clyde waterfront and demonstrates the Council’s commitment to delivering comprehensive flood
defence and quay wall stability solutions in Glasgow. To develop Glasgow’s metropolitan role, it
also recognises the need to deliver added value as part of this work, through high standards of
urban and landscape design.
The RCFMS has been formulated to provide information about the implementation of flood
management solutions and quay wall improvements, whilst incorporating public open space
creation and public realm improvements.
