This webpage relates to the proposed residential development at Govan Graving Docks, Glasgow.
The project team carried out several online and in-person statutory (and non-statutory) consultation events throughout summer 2022. Following the pre-application consultation, the proposed residential development now includes a ‘commercial use’ which emerged directly from community engagement. The addition of including commercial uses (maximum floorspace 220 sqm) within the description of development is a good example of the purpose of statutory consultation with the community and how the project team directly listened to feedback and amended the proposals accordingly. Following constructive dialogue with Glasgow City Council, in May 2023 we have now resubmitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) for the residential proposals.
Although the pre-application consultation period has now ended, the consultation boards remain available to view on this webpage.
This flagship project provides a once in a generation opportunity to create a vibrant and completely unique neighbourhood.
Situated along the southern edge of the site, the residentials proposals would create up to 310 new homes, taking up less than 20% of the overall site area, that will be designed and built to complement the heritage of the surrounding area, providing a natural extension to the Govan Community.
The new housing will provide high quality accommodation, resilient to the environmental conditions along the River Corridor, and complies with the highest environmental standards to provide low energy homes. In addition, the development will include a commercial unit, to serve the new and surrounding communities.
