These are documents sourced from the Glasgow City Council website, often when attached to the official, and therefore publicly available, Minutes of meetings. Some may have been, or are planned to be, published for public information and others are intended for internal information only.

These have been downloaded for research purposes. Please note it is possible for the documents to have been updated since they were downloaded or for new policy or practice to have replaced them. All of these documents were definitive versions at the time they were found. Some of the main documents are accompanied by an internal report or memo that is likely to have been prepared as an introduction when the main document is submitted to a council meeting for acceptance. Those reports can be informative in their own right.

If you are contacting councillors or other officials feel free to quote them, and there is certainly a good deal to learn from them.

This list will be updated with new documents and notes as we get more information.

Also look at the list of Minutes from Council meetings. [LINK pending]
