COUNCILLORS have given permission for a residential development at a high-profile junction on Glasgow’s South Side.
A S Homes Scotland Ltd working with Southside Housing Association, have been given approval to build 50 flats for social rent at the vacant Arnold Clark showroom on Pollokshaws Road.
Councillors on Glasgow’s planning applications committee agreed to the proposal on Tuesday. There had been nearly 50 objections but city officials had recommended that permission be granted.
They stated in their report [PDF file]: “Taking into account the infill nature of the proposed development and assessing the proposed density against the general principles, it is considered that the proposed density is appropriate and does not constitute overdevelopment of the site.”
There will be a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom units. There would be no car parking spaces provided.
The site is just yards from another former Arnold Clark location which is also subject to proposals for residential development.
