SOUTH Side Townhouses Approved By Glasgow Planning Committee

A DEVELOPMENT of 17 four-bedroom townhouses in Pollokshaws has been been given planning permission.

The application by Ambassador Residential involves former commercial laundry premises in Thornliebank Road at Wellmeadow Road.

The proposal was originally for 28 flats and eight houses but this was opposed by officials.

Their report states: “Following various meetings with the planning department the applicant reviewed their proposal and amended the proposal…down to 17 dwelling houses.”

Councillors on Glasgow’s planning applications committee voted to approve the revised application.

There will be 13 terraced houses — split over three blocks — and four semi-detached properties

All of them will have three floors, with garage/carport taking up the ground floors and living accommodation on upper storeys.

Each house will have a rear garden at least nine metres in depth.

Vehicle and pedestrian access is to be taken off Greenknowe Road.
