NEXT Phase Of New Glasgow Canalside Quarter Is Approved

20 January, 2023 | News

PERMISSION has been given for nearly 80 three-storey terraced houses in the second stage of the massive Dundashill development.

planning application seeking permission for 62 three-bedroom houses and 16 four-bed properties, plus a communal sunken garden, submitted by Bigg Regeneration, has now been approved by Glasgow City planners.

The properties are proposed for platform 4a at Dundashill, where around 600 homes are to be built on the site of the former Diageo distillery.

A design document included with the application stated: “The proposals reflect the ambitions of Bigg Regeneration and will continue to build on the commitments already realised at Dundashill, to promote this as a emerging canalside, distinctive, urban living quarter.

“There is a strong belief in high quality, crafted architecture, public realm and landscape that is well connected to its local and wider context.

“Bigg Regeneration is proposing to deliver housing that responds to the daring and distinctive character of this emerging new place.”

The first phase at Dundashill involves around 90 properties by West of Scotland Housing Association for mid-market rent.

The design statement continued: “A key potential of platform 4A is that it sits atop Dundashill, affording expansive light quality and views across the city in all directions, as well as providing the opportunity for a centrally located community garden. The designs look to optimise on these features, through orientation, terraces and large openings.”

All dwellings will have back gardens and roof terraces. There will be one car parking space per dwelling on street, and additional visitor spaces spread out.
