COUNCILLORS have agreed that 36 flats can be built beside Alexandra Park in Haghill.
Glasgow’s planning application’s committee approved the development after hearing that parking had been increased following a request for this aspect of the plan to be looked at.
The flats are to be built by Home Group on the site of a former care home — Peter McEachran House — at Kennyhill Square, near Cumbernauld Road.
Parking has been increased from 16 to 24 spaces while still leaving room for a landscape buffer between the development and Alexandra Park.
Planning officials had recommended approval. Their report stated: “Given that the applicant is a social landlord, parking can be controlled. Only a number of units will have a dedicated parking space, the rest will be advertised as car-free by the applicant.
The building will have six floors and contain 12 one-bed flats and 24 two-bed flats (of which four will be wheelchair adaptable).
