HUNDREDS Of Homes Proposed For Historic Govan Dock

17 January, 2024 | Listed / Historic Buildings, Major Developments, Clyde Riverfront

PLANS to create a new community and regenerate the iconic Govan Graving Docks have been submitted to Glasgow City Council.

The proposals, led by New City Vision, and designed by Glasgow based architects O’Donnell Brown, would see the construction of up to 304 apartments on the southern boundary of the site, extending the broader Govan community and bringing life back to the 19th century docks.

The flats will be a mixture of one, two and three bedroom units. There would also be ground floor commercial spaces.

The developers say new homes will take up just 20 per cent of the overall site footprint. Following completion of the regeneration vision, it is intended that 80 per cent will be transferred to community ownership.

The submission marks the latest milestone in a wider masterplan to regenerate the three docks and deliver a range of uses.

Work is already underway to reopen Dock No.1 for historic ship repair, with future phases including the development of a heritage park.

Plans to repair and restore the Pumphouse -– the sole remaining building on the site — into a visitor and community attraction also form part of the masterplan.

Harry O’Donnell, chairman of New City Vision, said: “I am delighted to have submitted our residential proposals to build new housing along the southern side of the site and have reached this milestone in our journey.

“Taking up just 20 per cent of the overall site footprint, these plans have been sensitively designed to complement our vision, ensuring development of a new and dynamic space fit for the 21st century while also increasing supply of much-needed new homes.

“As this proposal has been the subject of extensive community consultation over the past two years, I would like to thank all those who have provided feedback throughout the consultation process, and I look forward to continuing this engagement as we bring forward our proposals for the component parts of our wider vision.”

A planning application has been submitted to Glasgow City Council, and it is anticipated that a decision will be reached in spring 2024.
