DESIGNS For The Public Face Of HMP Glasgow Unveiled

26 January, 2024 | News

PLANNING permission is being sought for various buildings proposed for Glasgow’s new prison.

HMP Glasgow is to be built at the former Provanmill Gas Works, Royston Road, and will replace Barlinnie.

Permission has already been given for a prison to be built at the site but consent is still needed for detailed aspects.

Designs for the five major cell blocks at the jail were approved at the end of last year, and a further application for other structures has now been lodged.

These include the main front-of-house buildings and ancillary, non-houseblock accommodation such as the central facilities building, together with two small accommodation blocks, the additional care unit and care support unit. Landscaping proposals are also included.

The two-storey front-of-house complex will face Royston Road and is the main entrance point for public visits. It will include a visitor and community café and garden area.

There will be a bridge link from it to the secure zone beyond the security wall.
