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.
Here's a longer post explaining in more details what the plans are https://www.livingrent.org/shawlands_arcade_development
