PLAN For Children’s ‘Role-Play Village’ At Premises In Calton

WAREHOUSE premises in Calton look set to be transformed into an indoor children’s play village with cafe.

A planning application has been submitted for an “imaginative, educational role-play centre” at 25 McFarlane Street, in space currently used as an extension by the neighbouring Glasgow Pram Centre.

A document included with the proposal states: “The business concept is to set up a small-scale village comprising of small rooms, for example, a supermarket, fire station, police station, hairdressers, hospital, theatre, roads, traffic signals, village square, etc.”

Other areas shown on application drawings include a newsroom, post office and vet.

The statement continues: “The village itself will be designed in such a way as to replicate, in miniature, some of the iconic buildings/elements from Glasgow.”

Three two-hour play sessions will be held each day, between 10am and 6pm. There will be a cafe area, with seating for up to 100, and two party rooms for hire.

The application pending consideration by planners.
