DETAILED plans for development of an area of open space next to the Clydeside Expressway in Partick have been approved .
Glasgow’s planning applications committee voted in favour of Nixon Blue’s proposals for a site on Beith Street which is currently landscaped with trees, grass and a path.
There will be 48 two-bedroom apartments in two six-storey blocks.
Council officials had recommended that permission be granted. They stated: “The design of the buildings includes recessed entrances and top floor setbacks to create a more varied façade that would help break up the massing of the buildings.”
The principle of residential development of the land had already been approved by Glasgow City Council’s planning local review committee in December 2019, subject to completion of legal agreements.
The proposal had attracted strong community opposition, with yellow ribbons being tied on trees in protest.
The pedestrian and cycle route through the site will be re-routed.
