THE latest attempt to develop a disused bowling green in Glasgow’s West End has been submitted to planners.
The proposal by site owners Nixon Blue is the third to be drawn up for the former Corunna Bowling Club in St Vincent Crescent.
It features 20 apartments — a mix of two, three and four-bedroom units, plus duplexes — in a five-storey building, with underground parking.
This compares with 36 flats in a seven-storey block in a previous application which the developer itself withdrew just days before it was due to be considered by councillors.
Planners had recommended refusal of that proposal.
Nixon Blue’s first plans for the site — which were refused in 2019 — were for a nine-storey building with 39 apartments.
The land is classed as protected open space although there is currently no public access to it.
The new plan proposes a much larger open garden and amenity space to the front of the development for use by residents and the local community.
