Both Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government have made the east end of Glasgow a particular (though not the only) focus for legacy from the 2014 Commonwealth Games.<p></p> In order to achieve local legacy impacts, preparations for the Games themselves have been integrated with a regeneration strategy for the east end, and developments and other activities in the area have been underway since the award of the Games to Glasgow in 2007.<p></p> This report is part of a study, GoWell in the East End, which started in 2012 and is due to continue until 2017. The report examines the likelihood of the Games, and associated regeneration activities, having economic impacts upon the east end in the short-term and the medium- to long-term.<p></p>
