DESIGNS Revealed For Housing Development At Former School

GLASGOW Housing Association has submitted a planning application for its proposed residential development at a school site in Knightswood.

The proposal is for 70 properties — 28 houses and 42 flats — at the former Garscadden Primary in Hurlford Avenue.

A statement included with application documents explains: “The development incorporates a range of houses, flats and accessible properties to accommodate a diverse range of residents and their requirements.”

Twenty of the houses will have two bedrooms and eight will have three bedrooms. There will be six one-bedroom cottage flats and six two bedroom cottage flats. There will be a further 17 one-bedroom flats and 13 two bedroom flats.

Allocated car parking — 56 spaces — is proposed for all houses, cottage flats, two-bedroom flats and wheelchair-accessible flats.

There are a further 15 unallocated spaces for visitors or those with occasional car use.

The proposals are pending consideration by city planners.

The housing association is in the process of buying the land from the city council and plans to demolish the structure as soon as possible.
