IFSD Shortlisted for Top Local Government Award

05 Feb 2010

Glasgow's IFSD has been shortlisted in the UK's most prestigious local government awards.

The transformation of the Broomielaw to create the IFSD is one of six entries, from across the UK, shortlisted in the Regeneration Category of the Local Government Chronicle Awards.

Winners of this award are required to demonstrate that they have developed an ambitious vision for their area, show they have made a difference by unlocking the potential of its location, resources and people and provide tangible evidence of how they have improved the well being of the area and the people who live there.

Key members of the IFSD team presented to the judging panel this month and the winners will be announced in London in March 2010.

Tom Turley, Head of Planning, City Property (Glasgow) LLP said, "To be nominated for such a prestigious award reflects the strong relationships Glasgow City Council and Scottish Enterprise have forged with other public agencies and the private sector, to drive forward the regeneration of this vitally important corner of Glasgow city centre."

Since 2001, the IFSD has won numerous awards at a national and international level, for the quality of its planning, regeneration, job creation and overall partnership approach.
