COUNCIL Seek Go-Ahead For New School In North Glasgow

GLASGOW City Council has applied for planning permission to build a new primary school in Maryhill.

The campus — provisionally called North Kelvinside — is proposed for the gravel sports pitches bounded by Queen Margaret Drive, Maryhill Road and Kelvinside Avenue.

The council say the school is required because of “the resurgence, regeneration and rising school roll projections in the greater Maryhill area”.

The building would face Queen Margaret Drive and would have 14 classrooms accommodating up to 378 pupils.

Facilities would include a multi-purpose hall, flexible teaching spaces and drama stage.

Outside there would be a floodlit 11-a-side all-weather pitch, and a multi-use games area.

Facilities would be available for community use outwith school hours.

The development is pending consideration by city planners.
