KNOCKOUT Blow For Plan That Included Boxing Ring At Historic Building

27 September, 2023 | News, Listed / Historic Buildings

A PROPOSAL to turn a vacant A-listed central Glasgow property into flats and a gym has been rejected.

An application had been made to divide 48 Carlton Place into two flats, on the upper floors, and a commercial gym at basement level.

The gym was to have had a boxing ring, fitness suite, a Muay Thai training area and changing rooms.

But city planners refused permission. Their decision notice stated that the mixture of uses would mean noise and disturbance for residents of the flats.

They also felt the plans wouldn’t represent “sensitive enhancements” to the category ‘A’ listed building because of “inappropriate internal configuration” of some of the front rooms and the enclosure of the ground floor stairway.
