Glasgow Historic Environment: A Snapshot – 2019

Ever wondered which buildings in your neighbourhood are listed, or even on Scotland’s Buildings at Risk Register?

In April 2018 we held a Forum event which explored what we need to do, together, to improve the state of Glasgow’s heritage.

Following that event, we’ve created a new page on our website containing facts, figures and data collated between February and April 2018, and a downloadable version of the final report from the event. Together these give a snapshot of the current state of Glasgow’s historic built environment. As of April 2019 the map and report have been updated to reflect any changes since 2018, further data points and a second Forum which was held in March 2019.

A huge amount of information already exists, collected at different scales and times and kept in different places by different people. This page brings some of that information together into one place, and drills down to give an idea of what’s going on in Glasgow.

Scottish Index Of Multiple Deprevation

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation identifies small area concentrations of multiple deprivation across all of Scotland in a consistent way. It allows effective targeting of policies and funding where the aim is to wholly or partly tackle or take account of area concentrations of multiple deprivation.

The SIMD ranks small areas (called datazones) from most deprived (ranked 1) to least deprived (ranked 6,505). People using the SIMD will often focus on the datazones below a certain rank, for example, the 5%, 10%, 15% or 20% most deprived datazones in Scotland.

Statistic.Gov.Scot hosts an interactive map dispalying the SIMD data set, you can also download the raw data as a CSV file for use in your own analyisis.

Buildings at Risk Register

The Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland is an essential resource for those interested in and working with Scottish built heritage. The Register is maintained by Historic Environment Scotland, and provides information on properties of architectural or historic merit throughout the country that are considered to be at risk.

The Buildings at Risk Register has been in operation in Scotland since 1990 in response to a concern at the growing number of listed buildings and buildings in Conservation Areas that were vacant and had fallen into a state of disrepair.
