This week CDPI published a detailed report on the planning history of Govan Graving Docks which demonstrates clearly that a major housing development at the historic dry dock site is neither feasible nor desirable.
We also want to produce a documentary film about Govan Graving Docks and have launched a fundraising campaign on Crowdfunder.co.uk. However we need to raise £6,500 for this in the crowdfunder by 29th December 2016 or we won’t get a penny!
From today and over the weekend we are asking you to help us out with a massive social media blitz – to spread the word about the planning history report and the crowdfunding campaign – far and wide to as many people as possible. Also to get more signatures on the petition:
We have the developers on the ropes now and it’s time for a huge push to deliver the final Coup de Grace for private housing proposals and ensure Govan Graving Docks is protected as a maritime asset for future generations and the benefit of the community.
We’re only five months away from the local government elections. Huge pressure needs to be put on politicians in Glasgow and at Holyrood to acknowledge the state of Govan Graving Docks and how long the site has been derelict.
