PLANNERS have approved a new neighbourhood at a brownfield site in the Royston area of Glasgow.
Swan Group has been given permission to build 136 houses and flats for mid-market rent on land bounded by Darnick Street, Royston Road and the adjacent railway.
There will be 86 two and three-bed terraced and semi-detached houses and 50 two-bed flats.
A design document included with the application stated: “The development comprises a range of heights to respond to the surrounding context.
“Four-storey flats are positioned facing Darnick Street and Royston Road, to address the street.
“As the development turns the corner on to Darnick Street, the perimeter blocks reduce to two storey in height to respond to the housing opposite the site.
“The development has a range of house and flat types to suit a variety of different residents and their needs.”
