Greater Glasgow - Glasgow City Region

The Glasgow City Region, is a collection of local authorities clustered around Glasgow. The eight constituent authorities are:

  • Glasgow
  • East Dunbartonshire
  • West Dunbartonshire
  • North Lanarkshire
  • South Lanarkshire
  • East Renfrewshire
  • Renfrewshire
  • Inverclyde

The estimated population of this area in 2007 was 1,750,500. The city region is not a conurbation as significant parts of the council areas (and the whole of Inverclyde) are separated from Greater Glasgow by open countryside. It uses numerous other terms for itself, including Metropolitan Glasgow, the metropolitan City-Region of Glasgow" and Glasgow and the Clyde Valley. The city region has no single municipal government, the eight authorities instead form a combined strategic planning authority.

    Alvina felt herself swept ... into a dusky region where men had dark faces and translucent yellow eyes, where all speech was foreign, and life was not her life. It was as if she had fallen from her own world on to another, darker star, where meanings were all changed.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    A tragic irony of life is that we so often achieve success or financial independence after the chief reason for which we sought it has passed away.
    —Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)

    Nor is there singing school but studying
    Monuments of its own magnificence;
    And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
    To the holy city of Byzantium.
