Glasgow City Council OKs Funding for Camlachie Burn Scheme

Glasgow City Council yesterday approved the release of funding towards the Camlachie Burn (Biggar Street) project, a scheme which will reduce flooding and release land for development.

The release of this £1.4 million funding, 80% of the project’s cost – a Scottish Government General Capital Grant – will allow the construction of a new 185 meters channel (12 meters wide by three meters deep) including connections with the existing upstream and downstream culverts.

According to the council’s announcement, the remaining 20% of the project cost will come from the Glasgow City Region City Deal.

The Camlachie Burn (Biggar Street) project will create greater drainage capacity within the Camlachie Burn catchment so reducing the risk of flooding and making possible the regeneration of vacant and derelict sites in the area.

This project also forms a key component of the Metropolitan Glasgow Strategic Drainage Partnership (MGSDP) City Deal Business Case.
