PLAN For 20 Flats And Houses In Carnwadric

GLASGOW Housing Association has applied to build 20 homes on a vacant site in Carnwadric.

The land bounded by Carnwadric Road and Hopeman Road, Glasgow once had a community hall and a car park on it and is on the Glasgow/East Renfrewshire boundary.

There would be two one-bedroom, wheelchair-accessible flats and seven two-bedroom flats in a three-storey block plus nine terraced houses — six with bedrooms and three with three bedrooms — and two  townhouses, each  with four bedrooms.

A design document submitted with the application states: “The proposed site layout comprises a mix of flats, townhouses and terraced houses accessed off a new shared-space road off Carnwadric Road into the centre of the new development.

“A central linear park with soft landscaping to the north/west and the south/east is the focal point of the new development and provides community amenity and play space for the residents.

“The terraced houses look out on to the park to the front, with no parking spaces directly in view of the principal living rooms.

“The corner flatted block can be accessed via both Carnwadric Road and from the new access road within the site. The town houses are accessed off Carnwadric Road to the front, with access to communal parking to the rear.

“All private gardens and drying amenity are accessed from the rear of properties.”

Thirteen car parking spaces are proposed.

The application is pending assessment by Glasgow planners.
