Glasgow Springburn (Scottish Parliament constituency)
|Former burgh constituency
for the Scottish Parliament
|Council area||Glasgow City|
|Replaced by||Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn|
Glasgow Springburn was a constituency of the Scottish Parliament (Holyrood). It elected one Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) by the plurality (first past the post) method of election. From the 2011 election, the constituency was abolished and subsumed into a larger Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn seat.
The Glasgow Springburn constituency was created at the same time as the Scottish Parliament, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of an existing Westminster constituency. In 2005, however, Scottish Westminster (House of Commons) constituencies were mostly replaced with new constituencies.
The Holyrood constituency is entirely within the Glasgow City council area, on its northern boundary. It is west of the Baillieston constituency, north of Shettleston, northeast of Kelvin and east of Maryhill, which are also entirely within the city area.
Following their First Periodic review into constituencies to the Scottish Parliament in time for the 2011 election, the Boundary Commission for Scotland recommended the effective merger of the Glasgow Springburn and Glasgow Maryhill constituencies. The new creation is a constituency known as Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn.
