PLANS have been drawn up to increase accommodation at Carntyne Primary School in Glasgow.
A two-storey extension with four classrooms is proposed for the building on Redford Street. Toilets, cloak and storage space will also be provided.
The new capacity for the Glasgow City Council facility will be 357 pupils. The current premises were completed towards the end of 2018 and have room for 231 pupils.
A design statement by architects Holmes Miller explains: “The original development of Carntyne Primary School offers a community facility that is well integrated within the urban fabric of this residential area.
“As originally planned for, an extension on the western edge of the school with an addition of four classrooms is deemed necessary going forward.
“The scale of the proposal has been assessed against adjacent residential neighbours with minimal impact on lighting or privacy.
“In extending the main school building towards the western boundary of the site, it allows a playground space to be maintained in use throughout the construction of the new building.”
The application is pending assessment by City planners.
