PLANNERS have refused permission for housing at a site in north east Glasgow.
Twelve homes for private sale were proposed for greenfield land in Robroyston, between Hillhead Road and Brookfield housing estate.
There were to be six two-storey, three-bed semi-detached houses and six detached, four-bedroom homes.
City planners have rejected the application. Their report states: “The proposal will result in the loss of a greenfield ‘site’ and will not result in the reuse of vacant and derelict land.
“In addition, the proposal will not protect or enhance the function and integrity of the city’s green infrastructure as it will result in the loss of a protected amenity open green space.”
It continues: “This site is protected open space and the applicant has not made a case for why the presumption against development on open space should be set aside in this instance.
“The proposed design and layout fails to provide a satisfactory response to the site itself and the wider context; and the proposed loss of protected amenity greenspace will impact negatively upon the residential amenity of local residents and the wider community.”
