|Retain and attract
||User Survey: Of the 60% (n=9) of Kelvindale rail
users who have moved into the area in last 5 years, nearly all (n=8) stated
that improvement in local rail services had influenced their decision to move
home (although the sample size is small).
|Make area more
attractive as a place of employment or leisure
||User Survey: As per Larkhall, analysis of
non-residents' destinations show almost no trips are made to the Kelvindale
area for employment or leisure on a frequent basis (n=2). This perhaps
reflects the fact that Kelvindale is predominantly a residential rather
commercial centre and is therefore a trip generator rather than attractor.
||User Survey: For those rail users for whom
Kelvindale is the nearest station (n=12), just 17% (n=2) believe that the
value of their property has gone up as a result of the new station (although
none thought it had decreased as a result).
|Encourage spending by
||User Survey: No respondents indicated that their
spending habits have changed locally. One-third (n=4) however now spend a
greater proportion of their income in other non-local places, predominantly
in central Glasgow. Again, this analysis refers to spending at an individual
level rather than the overall level of spending in a particular area.
investment and land development
||Business Survey: No businesses
surveyed had moved into the area since the rail project was completed
