PERMISSION is being sought to demolish a church in Glasgow’s West End.
A building warrant application has been made to Glasgow City Council seeking to knock down the former Partick Baptist Church building in Crow Road.
Local MSP Paul Sweeney, posting on Twitter following publication of reGlasgow’s article, described the proposal as “ridiculous”.
He added: “The Partick Baptist Church was built by Andrew Black, his last project before his death in 1927. He was an influential teacher of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
“It is probably the last neo-perpendicular gothic church built in Glasgow. It remains in good condition.”
Prior to the covid pandemic, the premises had been in use for several years as the West End campus of Queen’s Park Baptist Church. The church has said its lease arrangement came to an end during lockdown.
No indication is given in the application regarding plans for the site.
