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.

The consultation boards will be on display at our upcoming public exhibition and will be published on this webpage on 1st June 2023 and we invite you to leave feedback via the feedback form or via email to


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.

Consultation boards from our second workshop session can be viewed here.


To ensure that our vision for the Docks, as a thriving hub of activity for the community and city comes to fruition, input into the design proposals from the local community is essential.

Over the summer of 2023, we will be hosting a series of drop-in workshops for members of the public to inform the design proposals.

The first stage of this will allow members of the public to leave their feedback and suggestions with the project team, while the second will allow those interest to view informed proposals by the initial round of engagement.

In-person drop in events will be held on:

Thursday 1st June:

  • 12:30 – 16:30 – The Riverside Hall (29-31 Clydebrae St, Govan, Glasgow G51 2AJ)
  • 17:30 – 19:30 – The Pearce Institute (840-860 Govan Rd, Govan, Glasgow G51 3UU)

Thursday 20th July:

  • 12:30 – 16:30 – The Riverside Hall (29-31 Clydebrae St, Govan, Glasgow G51 2AJ)
  • 17:30 – 19:30 – The Pearce Institute (840-860 Govan Rd, Govan, Glasgow G51 3UU)

The opportunity to submit feedback will remain open until Friday 30th June and Thursday 10th August 2023 respectively.

The red line boundary shown in the Location Plan reflects the extent of the Proposal of Application Notice boundary only and the boundary does not reflect the footprint of the proposed housing. The red line boundary will be refined at the application stage. Further details of the proposals will be available on this website from 1st June.

Residential Consultation Event 2 - Feedback

Once you have viewed our residential proposals on the ‘Homes and Community’ page of this website, we encourage you to complete the online feedback form below in order to share your comments on the proposed development. Please note that this feedback form relates to the proposed new homes and commercial use only.

Please submit any comments by 10th August 2023.

Please note that comments submitted as part of this pre-application consultation are not representations to the planning authority. There will be an opportunity to make formal representations to Glasgow City Council when the planning application is made.

As demonstrated in the consultation boards, the location for the proposed new homes on the southern part of the site on Clydebrae Street and Govan Road has been informed through feedback from the community and stakeholders as well detailed analysis on Flooding, Heritage & Townscape analysis.
