PLANNERS Agree That Empty Shop In C-Listed South Side Tenement Can Become Cafe

18 March, 2021 | Food and Drink, Listed / Historic Buildings

THE owners of Giffnock’s Bramble cafe have been given permission to open an eaterie in Shawlands.

Glasgow City planners have approved a change-of-use application for a vacant shop at 924 Polloksaws Road, at Springhill Gardens, opposite Queens Park.

The site is a corner unit within a C-listed tenement in the Shawlands Cross Conservation Area.

The cafe will have internal and outside seating areas.

A report by officials stated: “The proposed frontage alterations would restore traditional materials, proportions and details, and would therefore entirely respect the period, style and architectural character of the listed building

“It is considered that the proposal would contribute to the generation of footfall within an existing parade of shops located midway between Shawlands and Strathbungo Town Centres

“The proposal would not result in the loss of an important retail or convenience retail facility.

“With adequate ventilation of the kitchen proposed, the use would not have a detrimental effect on the amenity of the local area.”

Proposed hours of operation are 8am to 8pm seven days a week.
