About Glasgow Pollok

Glasgow Pollok Map

The Glasgow Pollok Constituency is located in the South-West of Glasgow – the northern boundary runs alongside the Southside of the Clyde, and it takes in: the old capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde, Govan, a part of Glasgow famous for Rab C, shipbuilding and the Govan stones – but one which is undergoing extensive regeneration as part of the Glasgow City Deal and the Central Govan Action Plan; Penilee, Hillington; the metropolitan hub of Cardonald; the rolling hills of Mosspark; North Pollok; Crookston; the proud burghs of Priesthill and Househillwood; Nitshill; all the way down to Arden, with the southern boundary at Deaconsbank and Darnley – with its famous sycamore tree – bordering East Renfrewshire.

Notable landmarks in the constituency include: Queen Elizabeth University Hospital – or ‘The Southern’ as it’s known by many – the biggest hospital in Europe; Crookston Castle, where, rumour has it, Mary Queen of Scots got engaged; and Silverburn Shopping Centre. 

The people of Glasgow Pollok are diverse – both in terms of ethnicity and socio-economic background – but what unites them is the sense of community and civic responsibility. This has been exemplified by how local people have stepped up during the Covid response – from delivering groceries and hot meals to tackling social isolation. 

It truly is the people that make Glasgow Pollok.
