Over the last fifteen years or so there has been a marked improvement in the built fabric of Glasgow. Change, however, has been uneven. While some areas have been transformed almost beyond recognition, the increase in poverty over the past ten years means others have declined further into ghetto-isation and marginalisation.The reasons are obvious. The economic crisis unleashed in 2008 by the collapse of the banking system has put into reverse many of the previous minimal gains made in the fight against poverty. But one thing that would help, and improve the city’s ability to tackle its social problems,  would be the gaining of metropolitan status for Glasgow and the extension of the city’s boundaries to include its neighbouring areas and dormitory towns.  (READ THE FULL FEATURE: https://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/let-glasgow-flourish-the-case-for-a-metropolitan-city-boundary-ian-r-mitchell/ . )
