PLAN To Half Number Of Flats In South Side Townhouse Terrace

A ROW of former townhouses on Glasgow’s South Side is in line for a major makeover — including halving the number of dwellings.

Kelvin Properties want to upgrade the terrace at 10 to 22 Camphill Avenue, between Shawlands and Langside, near the south end of Queen’s Park.

If their application is approved by Glasgow planners, the buildings would be reconfigured so that there would be 21 flats instead of the current 41.

How the properties are expected to look

A submission by architects Holmes Miller states: “These properties were originally seven townhouses, but are now a complex division of flats and bedsits.

“In addition to re-configuring the internal layouts of the properties, a full restoration and refurbishment of the building will be carried out.

“This is to include stone cleaning and repair, window replacement in keeping with the character of the building, a new slate roof as well as providing a consistent line of dormers along the facade.”

Each original townhouse plot would have a maisonette at ground and basement; a flat at first floor level; a maisonette at second and third floors (third floor in the roof space).

Garden areas will be completely re-landscaped to provide parking, bin storage and amenity space for residents.

Twenty-one private car parking spaces would be provided to the rear of the site.

The application is pending assessment by council officials.
