140 affordable homes proposed for Glasgow gasworks site

Maxwell Road 4Developers have unveiled plans to build 140 affordable flats and houses at the former Maxwell Road gasworks in East Pollokshields.

Plans submitted by AS Homes on behalf of Home Group will see 96 townhouses and 44 flats as well as supporting amenity space and recreational areas developed on 8.3 acres of industrial land to the north east of the Victorian garden suburb.

The proposed layout strives to reflect best practice in terms of the Scottish Government’s Designing Streets and Glasgow City Council’s ‘Design Guide New Residential Areas’.

Designed by George Buchanan Architects as a series of homezones, courtyards and squares, the development will offer landscaped public open space throughout with each house given its own private back garden and flat residents sharing communal outdoor spaces.

A Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) was submitted to Glasgow City Council in September 2016 and public events were held in November.
