Anne McTaggart MSP – Parliamentary Motions

Motion S4M-11287: Anne McTaggart, Glasgow, Scottish Labour, Date Lodged: 23/10/2014

That the Parliament supports the call for a new scheme in Glasgow that encourages owners of city centre shops that are lying empty to lease them out on a month-by-month basis; considers that this would allow start-up companies to open shops without being tied into a long-term lease if the business failed and that this would also provide an income for building owners; believes that this scheme would help to keep Glasgow’s main shopping hub vibrant and busy; notes that the call has been made by Dan Hill, a director of the London-based Future Cities Catapult, an organisation that brings a wide range of groups together to develop solutions to the future needs of the city; understands that a similar scheme has been tried out in Australia, which has proved a great success, and hopes that Glasgow follows suit.
