FLATS Plan For Derelict Site Next To A-Listed Calton Church

A RESIDENTIAL development is being proposed for vacant land around a historic Calton church.

The properties would be built on land beside and to the rear of the category A-listed St Mary’s Church.

Two blocks of flats each with four floors are being proposed for social rent.

The application by AS Homes Scotland is pending consideration by the city council.
