Building Futures


Councillors have given GHA, a member of the Wheatley Group, the green light to proceed with its plans to develop 70 new homes at the site of a former Glasgow school, a development that will be constructed by CCG.

Glasgow City Council had agreed to sell the Garscadden Primary School site in Hurlford Avenue to the Association for £196,000 before plans were submitted back in February. The 1930s building was declared surplus to requirements when the school closed in 2017 and it will now be demolished to deliver 28 houses and 42 flats for mid-market rent.

Designed by Anderson Bell Christie, Twenty of the houses will have two bedrooms and eight will have three bedrooms. There will be six one-bedroom cottage flats and six two-bedroom cottage flats. There will be a further 17 one-bedroom flats and 13 two-bedroom flats.

Allocated car parking — 56 spaces — is proposed for all houses, cottage flats, two-bedroom flats and wheelchair-accessible flats. There are a further 15 unallocated spaces for visitors or those with occasional car use.

CCG is set to begin construction later this year.
