CITY planners have approved a large residential development at an east Glasgow school site
CCG Homes has been given permission to build 124 houses and 32 apartments at the 6.5-hectare Springboig St John’s School land on Edinburgh Road.
There will be terraced homes, town-houses and detached dwellings, comprised of a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom properties. One and two-bedroom flats will be contained in one four-storey block.
A design document included with the application stated: “The rich green quality of the site is largely retained with roads and buildings carefully positioned to minimise their impact on the semi-natural landscape.
“Large areas of the existing semi-natural landscape are retained largely untouched, providing high quality amenity space for residents. The new street network and footpaths will re-establish connections with the surround streets and community.”
An application for more than 100 houses on a neighbouring site was submitted late last year.
