Not good for Braehead.

Is this a way for Glasgow to get one back on Renfrewshire council.

I see your argument but isn't there also an element of what goes around comes around for Brae head and its impact on Paisley Centre?

Maybe. But I think it will impact just as much, if not more, on the shopping malls in the centre of Glasgow.

It's the lose of rates to Renfrewshire Council, I was more thinking.   Glasgow was never happy at losing boundary war.

What rates are raised are spent in Renfrewshire.  If Glasgow had got their way, it would have made a bigger impact.

I think brae head will undoubtedly lose some footfall from those in West Glasgow clydebank etc. It may however be offset somewhat by the new road bridge being built across the Clyde at Renfrew.

It's probably about time that part of Glasgow had investment in additional retail? Should tie in well with transport hub at Partick. As stated previously, likely to impact on city centre, esp with impending purge on private vehicles in city centre.

It's not a covered mall so Braehead will keep you drier for about 300 days a year.  Also they want to limit both the parking spaces and shorten the maximum parking time so you'll have to walk from Partick.  Not exactly a winning combination methinks.

Ouch.....

Intu's share price has collapsed since its high of nearly 900p in 2009.
But the shares stood at 34p when trading began at the start of 2020. The shares fell as much as 10% in early trading on Monday.
