GO-Ahead Given For Flats Block Beside Glasgow Park

COUNCILLORS have agreed that 36 flats can be built beside Alexandra Park in Haghill.

Glasgow’s planning application’s committee approved the development after hearing that parking had been increased following a request for this aspect of the plan to be looked at.

The flats are to be built by Home Group on the site of a former care home — Peter McEachran House — at Kennyhill Square, near Cumbernauld Road.

Parking has been increased from 16 to 24 spaces while still leaving room for a landscape buffer between the development and Alexandra Park.

Planning officials had recommended approval. Their report stated: “Given that the applicant is a social landlord, parking can be controlled. Only a number of units will have a dedicated parking space, the rest will be advertised as car-free by the applicant.

The building will have six floors and contain 12 one-bed flats and 24 two-bed flats (of which four will be wheelchair adaptable).
