GO-Ahead Given For Flats Block Beside Glasgow Park

22 October, 2019 | News, Residential

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).
