FLATS Development For Older People Approved In Bridgeton

THENUE Housing Association has been given permission for 27 flats on the site of a former East End care home.

Glasgow City planners have approved the development at Landressy Place,  where Carmichael House was located, in Bridgeton.

The accommodation is designed for older people. The three-storey building will contain a mixture of two and three-person properties. There will be six parking spaces.

A document included with the application stated: “The proposals include a large common garden for residents to enjoy which aims to promote well-being for residents over the age of 55 years old.

“Health issues such as dementia, depression and lack of physical exercise are common in this age group -– this space aims to combat some of these issues in addition to the benefits of having Glasgow Green on the doorstep.”
