Save the Steps

Save the Steps

Cancel their plans to go ahead and demolish the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall steps, and replace them with a glass atrium.

Why is this important?

-The steps are an iconic place. They have been used extensively by demonstrators. For instance, in the run up to the Scottish Independence Referendum, the steps were widely used by both "Yes" and "No thanks" campaigners.

-The steps are popular. Many people use them as a place to sit, eat their lunch, socialise and listen to buskers.

-There aren't many places in Glasgow City Centre to sit. Apart from George Square, there really isn't anywhere you can sit.

-The steps provide excellent views over Buchanan Street and beyond. These views are captured by local photographers and artists.
