Shawlands/Langside Branch

After getting together in January 2021, Living Rent Shawlands/Langside members have been working hard to build their branch.

At the launch of the Shawlands/Langside branch in July 2021, members voted to campaign on the proposed redevelopment of the Shawlands Arcades which represents one of the biggest changes to the neighbourhood in recent years.

In the midst of a rent crisis, and a serious lack of homes suitable for families living in the Southside of Glasgow, the idea to develop 600 one and two bed apartments in a bid to extract high rents to maximise profits for investors, is an insult to the local community.

After a long hard fought campaign, and despite huge public support, the council voted to approve the development. You can read more about the campaign here and on our news and achievements section. Since then, members have also been getting active in the city wide campaigns to fight against mould and damp and against the Mears' evictions of refugees.

Our branch meetings are currently held on Tuesdays on the first full week of the month, 6.30-8pm at the Shawlands United Reformed Church (111 Moss-Side Rd, Shawlands G41 3TP)
