Constituency Profile

This seat contains the Easterhouse housing estate, a vast neighbourhood that was built as a result of a radical post-war attempt to solve Glasgow’s historic housing problems.

The council-built tenements line both sides of the M8, which is the major road link from Glasgow to Edinburgh. Some regeneration has taken place in recent years, and in 2002 the area was designated a zone of Social Inclusion Partnership, which placed the arts at the centre of its regeneration policy. Robroyston, Balornock, Dennistoun and Hogganfield, which used to be in the Springburn seat and Garthamlock and Easterhouse, which used to be in Ballieston, now feature in Glasgow Provan.

Labour’s Paul Martin – the son of former Commons speaker Michael Martin – was elected to the seat of Glasgow Springburn in 1999. He retained the seat in 2003; 2007 and 2011.
