GO-Ahead Given For The Range Retail Development

PLANS for a major new The Range store in Glasgow have been approved.

City council planners have given the go-ahead for the 4,645-square-metre home and leisure goods outlet with garden centre on a site beside Great Western Retail Park, Drumchapel.

There will also be two small cafe/restaurant units.

The application by Kier Property Developments is for a site bounded to the north by Allerdyce Road, to the east by Duntreath Avenue, to the south by the slip road from the A82 to Duntreath Avenue, and to the west by the land occupied by a bingo hall.

An upper floor 2,900-square-metre leisure space originally proposed for the development no longer features in the plans which now also feature redesigned public realm including enhanced landscaping and an increased number of  distinct safe pedestrian routes.

Documents submitted to Glasgow City planners at the time of the planning application in September stated:  “The proposed development will deliver long-overdue investment for the Drumchapel area.

“This is the one remaining area of land which remains undeveloped following the closure, over two decades ago, of the former Goodyear tyre factory.”
