How We Started

BCDC was set up in 2005 to help deliver projects set up in the Community Futures Action Plans. Since 2004 we have compiled 2 of these plans and are currently preparing a new document for 2014.
We are a registered company and charity, run by 10 board members, 160 members and three employees.
The company is currently based in the Former Church Hall, Quarrywood Avenue, Glasgow, G21 3ES

What We Do

Our main aim as a company is to engage the community and involve them in decision making and to continue to strengthen and build community capacity. It is also important that we engage with new residents as well as old and make sure all residents have a chance to participate in local organisations and activities as well as feeding their views into the housing and regeneration work as it progresses.

Our Future Plans

After almost seven years effort the Big Lottery has awarded over £1,000,000 towards the project cost of approximately £1.7 million and BCDC have successfully applied for other grants to make up the difference. Work started on site in May 2015 and is due for completion around July 2016. The new premises will include 3 halls, two meeting rooms, a recording studio, a soft play area and a kitchen. The new halls will replace the much loved Tenants Hall, built in 1955. BCDC intend to organise activities for the benefit of local residents and we invite residents to offer suggestions on what they would like the new premises to offer. We are confident this new facility will prove a major boost for the area and we want local people to become involved.

Regular updates will appear on our website on new build progress.
