HOMELESSNESS Assessment Centre Plan For North Glasgow Site

GLASGOW City Council has applied for planning permission to build a homelessness assessment centre.

It will be built as an extension to the 30-unit homeless accommodation block in Rodney Street, between Garscube Road and the Forth and Clyde Canal.

Funding of up to £4.5million has been approved for the project which will replace temporary accommodation provided since September 2018. It is also proposed that adjacent land will be developed into community gardens.

The extension, due for completion next year, will consist of administrative offices, meeting and interview rooms, communal and activity rooms for service users, a medical treatment room and additional storage facilities.

An additional self-contained studio flat for disabled service users will also be provided.
