NEW Flats Plan Drawn Up For Historic Dennistoun Building

8 May, 2024 | Listed / Historic Buildings

REVISED plans for conversion of B-listed former snooker hall premises in Dennistoun have been submitted to city planners for approval.

The late 19th century building in Craigpark — previously Dennistoun Baths — would be turned into eight one-bedroom apartments under the proposals.

Planning permission was given last year to turn the building into five flats with a further six in a new extension at the back.

But the building has new owners who have dropped the extension plan in favour of using the rear area as a landscaped amenity area. The current extension at the back of the building would be demolished.

A statement included with application documents explains: “The proposal presents an opportunity to deliver a vibrant and viable alternative use for a landmark listed building with unique features, which has been vacant for approximately four years.

“The current proposal would see a redundant listed building brought back into use, with a sensitive redevelopment scheme, allowing for its future maintenance and retention.

“The interventions to historic fabric are all required to bring the building up to a modern living standard and provide necessary infrastructure. However, the overall character of the building would be respected.”

The application is pending assessment by Glasgow City Council officials.
