GO-Ahead Given To Resurrect B-Listed East End School

7 May, 2024 | Listed / Historic Buildings, Schools

PROPOSALS to turn a disused Victorian school into a Gaelic primary have been approved by Glasgow planners.

The B-listed St James Primary School at Green Street, Calton will be refurbished and extended.

Accommodation will include 14 classrooms in the original building with an extension housing a two-court multi-purpose hall, a kitchen and a drama and performance classroom.

In their decision report, officials stated: “The proposal would salvage a substantial listed building which is one of the remaining pieces of cultural heritage of the Calton area and would make use of a prominent brownfield site that had fallen into significant disrepair.

“The proposed extension is located to the side, away from the principle elevations, unashamedly modern with a glazed link to step away from the original building.

“The materials are proposed to be predominately a warm soft toned red brick. The proposed extension is subservient to the original building and its location, design, scale and proportions protect the building’s appearance, character and setting.”
