Appeal for Dennistoun apartments fails
Stanton Brook Estates’ appeal to overturn Glasgow City Council’s refusal of a plan for 46 flats in Dennistoun has been unsuccessful.
In May last year, the developer submitted plans to build the apartments between Birkenshaw Street and Cumbernauld Road.
Glasgow City Council officials said that the density and scale of the block of flats, combined with lack of open space, would result in overdevelopment of the site.
Officials also voiced concerns about a lack of open space and car parking facilities and also said that the proposed flat roof was not in keeping with the surrounding properties.
Stanton Brook Estates failed to provide an energy statement and the proposals did not include adequate compensation for the loss of habitats which would be caused by the development.
A council report stated: “No attempt has been made to establish character and a varied sense of place.”
In the planners’ decision notice for the appeal, said that the density and scale of the block, combined with lack of open space, would result in overdevelopment, ReGlasgow reports.
