Sanctuary finalises Victoria Infirmary consultation programme
Local residents will soon be able to share their views on the development of the former Victoria Infirmary site in Glasgow.
Having bought the site in August 2016, Sanctuary Group is committed to public consultation about the development and details about this process have now been finalised.
The consultation will be conducted at a number of two-day ‘drop-in’ events at Langside Library on Sinclair Drive in February and March.
The first consultation events will take place on Thursday 9 February and Saturday 11 February. They will focus on the ‘masterplan’ stage of the development and encourage discussion about the site in the context of the wider Battlefield area.
Four weeks later, on Thursday 9 March and Saturday 11 March, the second set of consultation events will take place – this time looking at more detailed design ideas and proposals.
The consultation programme will conclude with two final drop-in sessions over on Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 March, where the findings of the previous events will be presented alongside an exhibit of the proposed planning design. These final sessions will also act as the statutory consultation meeting.
The Thursday sessions will run from 2pm till 7pm, while the Saturday sessions will be from 10am till 3pm.
Representatives from Sanctuary and the design team, Collective Architecture, will be attending each drop-in session to answer questions, capture opinions and discuss people’s concerns.
Peter Martin, group director – development at Sanctuary Group, said: “We’re very excited to have the opportunity to redevelop the old Victoria Infirmary site and are looking forward to hearing from the community at the six drop-in sessions.
“We understand how important this site is to local people and our aim is to create a development that fits perfectly in this landmark location.”
