Flats plan lined up for B-listed Dennistoun snooker hall
A vacant B-listed snooker hall site in Dennistoun could be transformed into new flats under plans lodged with Glasgow City Council.
Designs by EMA call for the rear brick hall of the late 19th century building to be demolished and replaced with a three-storey extension.
Eleven flats would be provided, five in the original building and six in the extension.
A design statement submitted with the application explains: “The proposed development will retain the existing sandstone building to the main frontage of Craigpark, however demolition is proposed for the rear brick hall and replacement with a smaller extension which is suited to residential use.
“The extension will be sympathetic to the existing building, sitting lower than the main frontage roof line and will not be visible from Craigpark.
“The smaller development footprint provides the benefit of on-site amenity space to the rear, whilst maintaining use of the two existing pedestrian accesses.
“As the extension is smaller than the previous brick hall, the daylight and overshadowing of neighbouring properties will be improved.”
