Affordable homes bid lodged for Kelvindale railway land
West of Scotland Housing Association (WSHA) has brought forward detailed plans for 110 new homes on former railway land in Kelvindale, with an agreement in place to add a pedestrian footway to a nearby bridge.
Working with Convery Prenty Shields Architects, WSHA wants to deliver a mix of 110 flats and terraced houses, offering two to four bedrooms for rent, across four-storey blocks of flats and terraced houses on the vacant ground opposite 35 Dalsholm Road.
There are 113 parking spaces proposed, as well as a new entrance to the estate – through a traffic light-controlled junction.
A design statement submitted to the council said there is also an “in-principle agreement on the provision of a footway over the railway bridge to promote safe pedestrian movement northwards from Kelvindale”.
The design statement said: “The design proposal for the redevelopment of this vacant land parcel aims to provide a mix of affordable housing ranging from two bedroom to four bedroom as well as dwellings catering for specific accessibility needs.”
It added: “This will be provided in a mixture of flats and terraced housing to suit the current affordable housing requirements needs highlighted in the area, with provision for onsite car parking, refuse storage, bike storage and open amenity space all being provided as part of the proposal.”
