PERMISSION has been given for a site in Cathcart to be developed for commercial purposes.
Glasgow councillors granted an application by Avid Xircon North Ltd in relation to an area at the junction of Newlands Road and Tankerland Road.
The single-storey development would have combined floor space of 1,200 square metres and have nearly 50 parking spaces.
The approval allows for flexibility in what the units can be used for — retail, office, café/restaurant and professional services.
Hot food takeaway and leisure uses were also proposed but are no longer included.
The land currently contains a single-storey building previously used for engineering purposes by Weir Pumps. It has a paved car park above it.
The same developer has also recently secured residential consent for the same site.
Both applications are for planning permission in principle so detailed plans would still need to be drawn up and approved for either proposal to go ahead.
It’s suggested the commercial proposal would have up to four units.
A planning statement submitted by the applicant’s consultants Iceni Projects explained: “As an application for planning permission in principle, the scale and massing outlined within the sketches is indicative and the number of units within the commercial development is approximate and subject to change.”
