Over the last 11 years, we have invested £11.1 million in the conservation, enhancement and promotion of Glasgow’s built environment, helping around 2,000 people and organisations to safeguard their historic buildings.

Understanding your local heritage results in pride in the historic assets which in turn means that people will look after their built environment.
