Who is BCDC?

  • BCDC was set up in 2005 to help deliver projects set up by the old Barmulloch Tenants and Residents Association in the Community Futures Action Plans. Since 2004 we have compiled 2 of these plans and are currently preparing a new document.
  • We are a registered company and charity.
  • 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.

About Barmulloch - Our Vision for the Future

Barmulloch and its place in Glasgow

Barmulloch (Barr a' Mhullaich in Gaelic) at the northern edge of Glasgow is a housing estate built in the 1950s on former farmland. The residents have a strong sense of local identity and we are very proud to have a local nature reserve in Robroyston Park on our boundary.

Some key Statistics

  • Population just over 4,000 in 1,750 households
  • High percentage of children under 15 and people over pension age compared to Glasgow and Scotland
  • Lower proportion of people of working age than Glasgow and Scotland
  • 60% of households in social rented accommodation and 34% owner occupied
  • Twice the city average and three times the national average of lone parent households with dependant children
  • High levels of long term ill health (29%) compared to Glasgow (26%) and Scotland (20%)
  • Low levels of part time employment, full time employment and self employment and high levels of carers
  • Lower percentage of people with qualifications in education and training than for Glasgow or Scotland

The kind of place we want Barmulloch to be!

  • A place with first class community facilities and activities for people of all ages
  • A place with good connections - to services, shops and jobs
  • A place where long term residents and newcomers alike can lead healthy lives in decent homes
  • A place where people feel safe in our pleasant streets and well used attractive outdoor spaces
  • A place that retains and develops its strong community identity but which looks outward to work with our neighbouring communities
