NEARLY 50 Flats Proposed For Former Govanhill Garage Site

PLANS have been drawn up for a car-free residential development at the site of a former garage on Glasgow’s South Side.

Forty-nine flats — a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties — are proposed for the ex-Arnold Clark premises in Allison Street, Govanhill. There would also be a commercial unit.

The application seeking planning permission from  Glasgow City Council is by AS Homes Scotland Ltd and Southside Housing Association.

A statement submitted to the council explains: “The properties are all for social rent by Southside Housing Association, with low car ownership. The site has a high public transport accessibility and is located within walking distance of multiple amenities.

“The development is located adjacent the route of the [under construction] South City Way, a walking and cycle-friendly corridor running from Queen’s Park to the City Centre.

“As a result a car-free development is proposed with no allocated parking spaces offered.”

The plan is pending consideration by City Council officials.
