EAST End Development Would Provide Nearly 50 “Desperately Needed” Family Homes

PLANS for 48 houses at a site in Dalmarnock have been drawn up.

Keepmoat Homes have applied for a development on vacant land at Carstairs Street, French Street, Webster Street and Swanston Street, as part of the Clyde Gateway regeneration programme.

The grassed area is the proposed site

The properties would be mainly two storey but with feature three-storey bookend townhouses at all four prominent corners.

A design statement submitted with the application explains: “A bespoke range of house types is proposed for this site. This provides a good range of mid-priced unit sizes and types to ensure the broadest market appeal.

“A mix of terraced properties in two, three and four-bedroom formats is proposed. This mix will deliver desperately needed high quality new family housing for Dalmarnock.”

It continues: “The main design aim is to recreate a residential city block respecting and addressing the established street pattern. Active outward looking frontage is proposed on all four streets, with parking and amenity space contained at the heart of the block.”

There would be 60 parking spaces.

The application is pending assessment by Glasgow City planners.
