26 May, 2021 | Residential

How the latest proposal is expected to look

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.

How the latest proposal is expected to look

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.

How the second proposal was expected to look

Planners had recommended refusal of that proposal.

How the first proposal was expected to look

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.
